The BIM-UNT universal magnetic field sensor from Turck (Minneapolis) uses magneto-resistive, board level technology that improves performance. In addition, the sensing face has been placed in front of the sensor to help short stroke cylinders.

The sensor comes with a quick-mount tab that helps seat the sensor in the cylinders grove — even before the screw is tightened, making single-handed mounting possible. The position of the screw has moved away from the cable end, providing cable strain relief while ensuring the sensor remains in place when the cable is pulled.

A range of accessories, from precision mounting to wire relief strain products, are available to help install the sensors in all T-groove, dovetail, and tie rod pneumatic cylinders.
