Pepperl+Fuchs introduces Series F31 valve position sensors that are 1.25¨ tall and mount directly to the top plate of any standard pneumatic actuator with two screws for accurate position indication. They feature two electronic switching points that are integrated into one compact housing, and integral LEDs for visual status indication and diagnostics. Electronic switch contacts facilitate network communication, and they provide for direct control of a solenoid valve. These sensors will not fail over time due to metal fatigue, and they do not require a bulky metal enclosure to protect them from the environment or to keep unauthorized personnel from tampering with switch settings. They can be used on clockwise or counter-clockwise rotating actuators, or mounted onto a manual valve with an optional mounting bracket.
