MPS magnetic positioning sensor and MZT8 magnetic cylinder sensors are available for piston detection. MPS provides non-contact linear measurement with 4-20 mA and 0-10 V analog output. It offers 32-, 64-, 96-, and 128-mm stroke sizes, and 0.1 mm-repeatability, a 0.5 msec measurement rate, and 0.05-mm resolution. MZT8 pneumatic cylinder sensor for t-slots comes with an ASIC chip with GMR technology for magnetic piston detection with ±5% sensitivity tolerance.
