The sensor design of the MPS series made by SICK conveys functionality, precision and reliability with its clear geometry. The asymmetrical cross-section facilitates threading into the T-slots of pneumatic pistons (drop-in capability). The two screws in the end pieces fix them there from above, a patented fastening solution. The cable outlet in a recess of the end piece is also a clever design detail for routing the cable without losing space.
The MPS sensors are offered in 6 lengths and with this innovation, pneumatic pistons can be positioned with high precision for the first time. They are much more cost-effective than the linear actuators commonly used to date. The teach button and LED display are all that is needed for easy commissioning.
