January 8, 2015—

The new SDAT-MHS T-slot programmable position transmitter from Festo provides the same functionality as position transducers and mechanical potentiometers at a lower price point. These new sensors offer OEMs a flexible solution for sensing the position of pneumatic cylinders. By sensing the magnetic piston, cylinder position can be transmitted to the PLC with repetition accuracy of 0.1mm.  

The five sizes of the Festo SDAT-MHS correspond to the most commonly used strokes of Festo pneumatic cylinders. The SDAT-MHS detects complete strokes without projecting beyond the end of the cylinder, including full stroke length and end position sensing. In addition to analog position data, the SDAT-MHS also features a programmable digital switching output that can replace an existing cylinder switch.
