Festo proximity sensors are especially designed and optimised for Festo drives. They detect the magnetic field of permanent magnets built into the piston of the cylinder, thus indirectly indicating the position of the piston rod.
The available range covers freely configurable proximity sensors, modular systems, and solutions for special applications such as explosion protection, acids, food, cooling lubricants, weld field, etc.
The sensors series SIE... keeps a close eye on all metals, with functions ranging from sensing to distance measurement of metallic objects.
Position transmitters continuously and contactlessly record the movement of the piston in the position measuring range and output that information as a standardised analogue current or voltage signal. They are the ideal solution for all applications requiring object detection and process monitoring, such as thickness measurement, wear, good/reject inspection, etc.
Pressure sensors and vacuum switches for monitoring all pressure values: programmable, or as a modular product.
By monitoring the flow, simplified diagnostic and condition monitoring processes can be implemented; a change in the flow rate is often an indication that problems are likely to occur. The quality of the final product can also be monitored.
Force sensors for measuring static or dynamic tensile and pressure forces
With their optical measuring techniques, the sensors in the SOE... series cover a wide variety of tasks, from recognising colours and tiny parts through to laser distance sensing. All perfectly matched with products and services from Festo.
The signal converter SVE4 converts the analogue output signal from a sensor into switching points that can be taught in directly on the signal converter. Ideal anywhere where the accessibility of sensors is restricted.
Electric limit switches are used for signalling in end positions or intermediate positions. Depending on their connection, they can be used as normally open, normally closed or changeover contacts.
Pneumatic sensors are contactless signal generators. They are especially suitable for end-position sensing and position monitoring where high accuracy is required. Small dimensions allow them to be used in hard-to-access positions, at a wide range of ambient temperatures and in situations with high levels of dirt.
