Compact … the BIM-UNTK magnetic field sensor

 
TURCK has unveiled its new BIM-UNTK, the shortest magnetic field sensor in this sector for detecting the piston position in compact pneumatic cylinders. 
 
The IP67-rated sensor features a length of only 19.7mm, making it ideally suited for measuring particularly short hydraulic cylinders, pneumatic power clamps and grippers. Operators benefit from increased switch point accuracy, in addition to the sensor's extremely compact mounting form. The sensor disappears completely in the T groove, eliminating potential for any mechanical damage. 
 
An LED on the sensor enables the cylinder position to be read directly in the field.
 
The new BIM-UNTK can be fitted simply into the T groove of a cylinder from above or from the side, and can be secured with a hexagon socket screw. The sensor is easily fastened with one hand in the standard T groove without the need for any additional accessories. 
 
TURCK offers suitable mounting accessories for different cylinder and groove sizes for other cylinder types such as tie rod cylinders, round cylinders or dovetail groove cylinders.
 
The BIM-UNTK features a polyurethane jacketed cable that is suitable as trailing cable. Also available is a model with a 2m cable and an open cable end, as well as two 30cm pigtail variants with M8 and M12 connectors. 
 
The sensors are designed as 3-wire devices with an N/O output (PNP signal) and for temperature ranges from -25 to +70ºC.
