Sensor Technologies to Detect Pneumatic Cylinder Position

Sensor Technologies to Detect Pneumatic Cylinder Position

Sponsored by Balluff

Over the years, many users have abandoned the use of reed switches due to their failure rate and have utilized mechanical or inductive sensors to detect pneumatic cylinder position. AMR and GMR sensors are smaller, faster, and easy to integrate and are much more reliable however; they must overcome the stigma left by their predecessors. With the vast improvements in sensor technology, AMR and GMR sensors should now be considered the primary solution for detecting cylinder position.
