Magnetic position sensors are typically used on pneumatic cylinders that have internal magnets and non-ferrous housings. Turck has developed a number of different sensor housings and accessories that allow a designer to mount a BIM sensor on all common pneumatic air cylinders. In addition, we offer barrel sensor housings that can be used with external magnets for position applications.

How does a magnetic sensor work?
Magnetic sensors detect moving ferrous metal. Magnetic sensors detect moving ferrous metal. The simplest magnetic sensor consists of a wire coiled around a permanent magnet. A ferrous object approaching the sensor changes magnetic flux through the coil, generating a voltage at the coil terminals.
