MPS - Analog positioning sensors

By SICK Pty Ltd

The superior analog sensor for T-slots


MPS analog position sensors extend the functional range for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. The wide spectrum of measuring ranges from 32 mm through 256 mm makes it possible to cover a wide variety of cylinders along their entire stroke. Output function, switching and measuring performance, and teaching functionalities open up a wide range of new applications that were previously not possible or only possible with cost-intensive systems.


At a glance

  • Analog positioning sensor for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders with T-slot
  • Measuring lengths from 32 mm through 256 mm in 32 mm increments
  • Output signals 4 mA to 20 mA as well as 0 V to 10 V in a single sensor
  • Superior accuracy: typ. resolution 0.05 mm, typ. repeatability 0.1 mm, typ. linearity 0.3 mm, typ. sampling rate 1 ms
  • Electric setting of zero point and end point via teach pushbutton (optional)

Your benefits

  • Straightforward and time-saving installation as well as sensor replacement by means of drop-in sensor mounting
  • High flexibility through measuring ranges from 32 mm through 256 mm
  • Increased machine performance thanks to the sensor's minimal blind zone
  • Measuring range can be customized using the teach function
  • Freely selectable installation direction, enabling optimized cabling
  • Easy commissioning thanks to "In-range" display
  • Flexible sensor settings, monitoring, advanced diagnostics, and display thanks to IO-Link saves time and money
