Inductive proximity switches built into hydraulic cylinders are used for non-contact monitoring of final stroke positions.
Proximity switches are built into cylinders with cushioning where the cushioning geometry is detected on both sides.
The output given is a switch-like binary signal.
In the clamping device Ratio-Clamp®, the proximity switch will detect one of the states released or locked.
In the case of proximity switches with diagnostic output, the additional output monitors the function of the switch and the supply line.
A high signal is issued as long as the sensor is functional.
The optical setting aid guarantees an optimum working gap. This ensures that the sensor operates reliably throughout the entire tolerance range. Flashing indicates the uncertain range.
