Product description


GN 817.6 indexing plungers with sensor for position monitoring allow for electronic monitoring of the plunger pin state. For this purpose, a magnet is integrated into the plunger pin that switches the sensor upon engaging after approx. 2/3 of the locking distance l1.

The sensor electronics then outputs a high signal, e.g. to a machine control, and indicates this switch state with an LED on the sensor.

To prevent faults, no external magnetic fields should be acting on the indexing plunger. The GN 817.6 stainless steel indexing plungers are delivered with enclosed sensor (not installed), sensor clip, Allen® wrench and hexagon nut.
