Sensors & Switches
SMC offers a selection of electronic sensors for pressure, vacuum and flow.
Pressure Switch, Vacuum Switch, Flow Switch and Auto Switch (End of Stroke Sensors)
Pressure Switch series has been designed to meet the diverse needs of our customer base. Various options include IP65 protection, 2 color display, fluid switch, stainless construction, and high purity options. A compact size option also exists. Applications for digital pressure switches include areas such as positioning, leakage testing, and supply pressure verification.
Digital pressure switches monitor vacuum pressures, displaying instantaneous readings, as well as transmitting output signals when critical set points are detected. Switch outputs can trigger machine controls for continuing operation, emergency response, or maintenance. An amazing set of capabilities are packed into an inch-sized cube.
A digital flow switch is mounted directly inline with your machine or workstation's water supply to provide you with instantaneous flow information. An impressive set of specifications offers you flexibility in how you observe the flow data, while enhancing your ability to react to changing conditions.
SMC offers a variety of auto switches for actuators and air grippers. Reed and solid state switches are available in a general purpose type or with 2-color indication, which allows the optimum operating position to be determined by the color of the light. Solid state switches are also available in 2-color indication with diagnostic output, water resistant 2-color indication, built-in OFF-delay timer (200 ms), magnetic field resistant, heat resistant and wide range detection configurations. Various lead wire lengths are available.
Electro pneumatic air regulators control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. They are light weight in design with a bright and easy to read LED display. The monitor output is available either as analog output or switch output.
