Analog positioning sensors MPS - Sick

MPS position sensors continuously detect the piston position of pneumatic actuators using a direct, non-contact method. They can be mounted in C-slots and T-slots without the need for additional accessories. The sensor settings can be adjusted during installation and during operation later on, using a teach field or IO-Link.

The MPS analog positioning sensors, from Sick, continuously supply data via analog outputs or IO-Link, enabling flexible machine concepts and making it possible to solve tasks in areas such as quality monitoring and process control in conjunction with pneumatic cylinders and drives. This continuous transfer of position data upgrades the functionality of the pneumatic cylinders by making them more intelligent – and, as a result, more versatile.

  • Position sensor for direct mounting in C-slots and T-slots on pneumatic cylinders;
  • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 25 mm to 200 mm for C-slots and 32 mm to 256 mm for T-slots;
  • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link;
  • Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters.

  • Rapid mounting and exchange of sensors with drop-in;
  • Straight forward installation as no additional mechanical components or position elements are required;
  • Can be integrated into the machine at any time, as the sensor is attached to the cylinder externally;
  • Easy adjustment of sensor settings and parameters during operation using a teach field or IO-Link;
  • More flexibility compared to conventional cylinder sensors, as it is possible to define multiple switching points in the smallest of spaces;
  • Long service life thanks to non-contact measurement principle;
  • Advanced diagnostic options thanks to data transmission via IO-Link.

  • Pneumatic cylinders.
