Magnetic sensors – robust and precise

Based on the Hall principle or magneto-resistive circuits

Baumer magnetic sensors have a detection speed of up to 20,000 measurements per second. Since they work on a contactless principle and do not contain any moving parts like ball bearings, for example, they are maintenance- and wear-free, easy to handle and install, and are completely unaffected by soiling. This makes them absolutely indispensable in many applications, guarantees long service times and allows them to be used reliably in rail applications or in commercial vehicles.

Depending on the application, magnetic sensors offer a practical alternative to encoders or inductive sensors.

Baumer offers you a comprehensive and modular portfolio of different technologies (Hall sensors, proximity switches, cylinder sensors) and designs, and thus the ideal solution for all applications.
