Applications for the Automation Industry
  • Edge Trimmer

    We used a 955A Brik that could measure the difference between two magnets. The customer went with our D1 differential 4 to 20mA format that reported the distance between the magnets back to their controller.

  • Fiberglass Winders

    A 955CA BRIK with analog output can be mounted directly on top of the SMC cylinder to detect the magnet within. The analog output is then wired back to the customer’s PLC allowing the various end stroke positions to be programmed through the PLC/HMI.

  • Position Feedback for Flight Simulators

    The majority of these OEM’s use either analog or digital style LTD’s. The 953 VMax is available with analog, digital and SSI outputs that can operate off of 7 to 30 volts DC, making it a drop-in replacement in many applications.

  • Recycle Baler

    A 955S Brik with continuous feedback paired with the new Gemco floating magnet solves these problems. The analog signal is fed back to the PLC for absolute control.

  • Valve Positioning

    A 955S Brik with a standard slide magnet was mounted along side the valve. The slide magnet was connected to the cylinder so that the full stroke of the valve could be monitored.
