Pneumatic Cylinder & Actuator Sensors

Created and designed to produce linear motion, our pneumatic cylinder and actuator sensors are the ideal solution for important industrial processing applications such as clamping and positioning. These devices are also designed to detect the linear position of a piston, predominantly used in applications where position feedback is required.


Magnetic sensors, which are formally known as reed sensors are one of the most common proximity sensors found being used in conjunction with pneumatic cylinders, they detect the magnetic field of a magnet that is integrated within the piston of the cylinder. The sensor is usually mounted on the exterior of the piston body, switching on or off when it is either near the magnet or not.


Many of our pneumatic cylinder and actuator sensors feature an LED indicator, choices that are ATEX approved and different sizes and ports to suit your specific application.
