New Aventics ST6 sensor series enables simple assembly
ST6 series proximity sensors are simply "dropped" into the T-slot on the profile cylinder. Next, the captive eccentric screw is fixed with a quarter turn using a flat tip screwdriver or an Allen wrench. In contrast to products from other manufacturers, the installer does not need any special tools. The screw also reliably keeps the sensor in place, even in the event of impact or vibration. Retaining ribs on the side of the sensor enable simple mounting, including in hard-to-reach locations or for overhead assembly.
Proximity sensors detect the magnetic field of the piston magnet when the piston is moving within the sensor range. Once a defined threshold has been met, the electronics respond. The ST6 sensor series includes a wide range of versions with different line lengths and connections. Aventics also offers variants with ATEX certification and covers application temperatures from -40°C to 120°C with its cold and heat-resistant versions. The sensors are "cULus" certified, protected against polarity reversal, and short-circuit-resistant.
