August 29, 2010 - TURCK announces that BIM-UNR magnetic cylinder position sensors now include sensors with NPN outputs.BIM-UNR sensors are also enhanced with a combination mounting screw that grants users the flexibility of choosing a 3/16" (1.3 mm) Allen wrench or a flat-bladed screwdriver for sensor installation. Sensors can be securely mounted with a simple quarter-turn of the mounting screw, which is located in close proximity to the cable exit. This design ensures the sensors remain firmly fastened, even if a cable is pulled.About BIM-UNR SensorsWith dimensions of only 2.9 x 4.6 x 18 mm, BIM-UNR is one of the most compact sensors on the market. For easy installation, this miniature sensor can be inserted into a C-groove from the top rather than from the side. The sensor's active sensing element is placed at the bottom of the groove - as close to the magnet as feasible - to deliver reliable detection, particularly on short-stroke cylinders. In addition, BIM-UNR provides high immunity to EMC interference, in accordance with EN 60947-5-2.TURCK is an industry leader providing superior quality sensing, connectivity, network and interface products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes.
