The EUCHNER Cylinder Switch is a solid state Inductive Proximity Switch designed for sensing piston position in pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders.
With sensing probe capable of sustaining repeated shock pressures up to 5000 psi (350 bar, rise time 500 msec), it is suitable for use in power clamp-cylinders.
The cylinder switch is designed into a strong, precision-cast, stainless-steel housing that is sealed with non-removable cover to protect against dirt, chips, abrasives, cutting oils, water, and mild acids. Similarly, the sensing probe is encapsulated in a plastic sleeve to provide additional protection from high pressure contaminants.
The cylinder switch is available as normally open 2-wire AC/DC switch in an operating range of 20-250 volts and up to 0.5 ampere. It is compatible with programmable controllers.
Outstanding features of this solid state switch are the weld-field immunity and an extraordinary RFI-noise immunity.
