Unformatted text preview: m magnetic interference induction 0.2 mT Switching frequency approx. 50 Hz Ambient operating temperature -20 – +60 °C Table 3.3: Technical characteristics of a magnetic-pneumatic proximity sensor (example) The proximity sensor corresponds in principle to an air barrier, whereby a switching
blade continually interrupts the air flow of an impending signal. As the magnetic
field approaches (e.g. permanent magnet on the piston of a cylinder) the switching
blade is attracted and releases the air flow, thus creating a signal at the outlet.
Some sensor types are operated in combination with a pressure amplifier. 3.3.3 Notes on application
The distance between two magnetic-pneumatic proximity sensors should be at least
50 mm. It should be checked that the available magnetic field is sufficient for the
reliable operation of the proximity sensor.
If the low pressure output signal is to be used for further processing, then it is
recommended to fit a pressure amplifier in series. 3.3.4 Example of application
Magnetic-pneumatic proximity sensors are primarily used for position sensing of
They are particular...
