SME/SMT-10M / Cylinder switch


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The new SME/SMT-10M series of cylinder switches is suitable for all profile cylinders, grippers and slides with a c-slot. It is used in factory automation systems particularly for querying magnet positions on pneumatic drives. The switch gives the customer free choice of cable length, cable type and connection technology and can be inserted quickly and directly in the slot from above. The excellent switching point marking and the robust, secure clamping design make a precise installation simple. Practically invisibly integrated LED’s indicate the switching status and do show the position of the drive.
