Position Sensors

The wear-free, programmable, magnetic Hall sensors are used for length measurements. The magnetic field, which is produced by a permanent magnet, is outputed in a linear output voltage according to the longitudinal movement. The sensor is available with a connection cable (200 or 1,000 mm), with or without the M8 connector and as 5V or 36V variants.




  • High tolerance for misalignment
  • Max. air gap of 5.2 mm
  • Customer-specific programming possible
  • Detection possible on front and longitudinal side
  • Sensor can be mounted in normal and supine position

Application examples

  • Position detection in working machines
  • Length measuring system for lengths up to 40 mm
  • Position monitoring short-stroke cylinders
  • Position measurement chain tensioners
