Non-Contact. Reliable. Easy Assembly.
Electronic Magnetic Switches MMS
Magnetic switches are used for monitoring the position of automation components. They detect the approach of a magnet without contact and, above a certain switching threshold, enable their output.
Field of Application
For use in the monitoring of gripping and rotary modules, linear modules, and robot accessories. Magnetic switches from SCHUNK detect metals without contact or wear, and are resistant to vibration, dust, and humidity. Magnetic switches are fitted in slots, and therefore do not form any additional interfering contours. For connection with a digital input module (utilization categorie DC-12).
Options and special Information
ATEX version EX for explosive environments
Protection class as per DIN 40050 IP67 in plugged position for the use in clean or dusty environments or if contact with water is given. Functionability in case of contact with other mediums (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
Power supply 10 – 30 V DC, residual ripple < 10%
Sources of interference Sensors can be influenced by other magnetic fields in the immediate vicinity. Disturbing magnetic fields can be generated by motors, electric welders, permanent magnets or magnetized material (so-called soft magnets) such as allen keys, metal chips, etc.
