TURCK gets into the groove with new sensors


TURCK's BIM-UNR line of compact magnetic cylinder position sensors now includes a dual sensor designed for detecting short and long stroke C-groove cylinders.

BIM-UNR dual sensors provide a distinct advantage by combining two sensors through one cable connection to speed installation, as well as lessen wire costs and connection points.

This design makes the sensor particularly beneficial in areas where multiple cylinders are used, as it only requires a single cable. With dimensions of 2.9 x 4.6 x 18 mm, BIM-UNR features one of the lowest profiles on the market.

Delivering reliable performance and high EMC immunity, TURCK’s BIM-UNR dual sensor provides an exceptional alternative to ordinary cylinder position sensors. The sensor mounts within C-groove cylinders with no accessories required.

Plus, it can be inserted into a C-groove from the top rather than from the side, further simplifying installation.

On the sensor’s side is a built-in tab that keeps the sensor in place to facilitate one-handed mounting.

As the mounting screw is located near the cable exit, the sensor remains fastened even if the cable is pulled.
