Magnetic Reed Switches for Position Location

Clippard stainless steel pneumatic cylinders that are equipped with an internal magnet can be used with the Reed Switch and GMR sensor. By accurately sensing the magnetic field of the piston when it passes beneath the sensor, its position is determined, and a feedback signal is created.

GMR (Giant Magneto Resistive Sensor)

All Stainless Steel Cylinders

Designed for use in a broad range of applications including those in washdown and caustic environments, these quality cylinders are constructed of durable 303 and 304 stainless steel. They include a Nitrile rod wiper to keep potential contaminants from penetrating inside the cylinder, and are available with bore sizes from 3/4" to 2". Standard stroke lengths are from 1" up to 32" on some models.
