Position detection in mobile hydraulics
Sensors are being used increasingly to extend useful life and improve safety in mobile equipment. The new Micropulse AR Transducer from Balluff senses the piston position in mobile hydraulic cylinders. The sensor operates on the proven magnetostrictive principle. The compact size of the transducer makes it ideal for use in pivot bearing and spherical eye end cylinders or large bore cylinders. The processing electronics integrated in the transducer has been designed to meet the strict EMC Directives for industrial lift trucks, agricultural and forestry equipment and earthmoving machinery.
