Actuator position sensor
Do you need to know the position of your cylinder at all times?
Would you like a compact solution in order to do this?
SMC’s first actuator position sensor is the smart answer you need. With the D-MP Series, you will be able to know the position of the piston rod at all times without the need to fit multiple auto switches or any other bulky solution. As a result, actuation systems have increased functionality. This solution offers a choice of 3 output systems: analogue signal, IO-Link process data or flexible switching point.
Our latest arrival in IO-Link compatible solutions will add new possibilities to conventional auto switches and offer reassurance to factory operators by providing consistent accuracy and control at all times. Furthermore, the D-MP compact sensor can replace complex encoder systems to provide an efficient reading.
The sensor can be mounted onto a great number of our cylinders (ISO, compact, guided, dual rod, etc.), helping you to streamline your suppliers.
In summary, D-MP will bring you the following benefits:
