Analog position sensor
The analog MMS 22-A magnetic sensor is used for monitoring the status of SCHUNK grippers. It detects the approach of a magnet without contact and returns a continuous output signal.
Advantages – Your benefits
- C-slot sensor
for insertion into the gripper, therefore no interference contour.
- Programmable within no time
due to the contactless, magnetic teach tool
- Stroke measuring ranges adjustable
for the analog position monitoring even at long strokes
- Integrated electronics
allows for flexible cable assembly despite the space-saving outer contour
- Version with LED display
for checking the switching state directly on the sensor
- Version with standard plug connector
for fast and easy exchangeability of the extension cable
- Very flexible cable in PUR version
for a long service life
Options and special information
- 5 or 10 V output voltage
The MMS 22-A is available in versions with 5 or 10 V output voltage. The 5 V sensor is optimized for operation with the SCHUNK FPS system. The 10 V sensor, on the other hand, can be directly connected to an analog input, for example a PLC or a separate input card.
- Sources of interference
Sensors can be influenced by other magnetic fields in the immediate vicinity. Disturbing magnetic fields can be generated by motors, electric welders, permanent magnets or magnetized material (so-called soft magnets) such as hexagon socket wrenches, chips, etc.
- High protection class
IP67 when plugged in, for use in clean or dusty environments or in case of contact with water. Operability in case of contact with other media (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
- Shielding of a cable extension
Shielded cables are recommended if the analog signal is routed via cable extensions. The cable must be shielded on one end.
