MMS 22-A

MMS 22-A

Analog position sensor
The analog MMS 22-A magnetic sensor is used for monitoring the status of SCHUNK grippers. It detects the approach of a magnet without contact and returns a continuous output signal.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • C-slot sensor
    for insertion into the gripper, therefore no interference contour.
  • Programmable within no time
    due to the contactless, magnetic teach tool
  • Stroke measuring ranges adjustable
    for the analog position monitoring even at long strokes
  • Integrated electronics
    allows for flexible cable assembly despite the space-saving outer contour
  • Version with LED display
    for checking the switching state directly on the sensor
  • Version with standard plug connector
    for fast and easy exchangeability of the extension cable
  • Very flexible cable in PUR version
    for a long service life

Options and special information

  • 5 or 10 V output voltage
    The MMS 22-A is available in versions with 5 or 10 V output voltage. The 5 V sensor is optimized for operation with the SCHUNK FPS system. The 10 V sensor, on the other hand, can be directly connected to an analog input, for example a PLC or a separate input card.
  • 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 hexagon socket wrenches, chips, etc.
  • High protection class
    IP67 when plugged in, for use in clean or dusty environments or in case of contact with water. Operability in case of contact with other media (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
  • Shielding of a cable extension
    Shielded cables are recommended if the analog signal is routed via cable extensions. The cable must be shielded on one end.
