  SMC launches round body sensor unit for trimmer auto switch

SMC, the world’s leading provider of pneumatics, has rolled out a round body sensor unit for its new trimmer auto switch. The D-M9K sensor unit has been designed so that it can be directly mounted onto the round grooves of various actuators, removing the need for mounting brackets and improving set-up times. It can be used, together with an amplifier unit, for several applications and is also suitable for short stroke actuators. The D-M9K offers customers’ greater flexibility as it can check the height, depth and size of various workpieces, using only one trimmer auto switch. The single switch, which has two outputs that can be adjusted individually, can also detect the differences in workpieces from 0.5 mm. And thanks to an e-con connector, customers also benefit from the easy to assemble sensor and amplifier, which are purchased separately. Recognised as a global technology leader and voted for the third consecutive year as one of the world’s most innovative by leading business magazine, Forbes, SMC has a diverse customer base covering all automation industries.
