The sensor works on the principle of magnetostriction. The measurement principle for high-precision determination of the position, the path and/or the velocity is based on a runtime measurement. On the basis of this touchless and wear-free functioning measurement system, HYDAC offers a version in pressure-proof stainless steel housing for complete integration in hydraulic cylinders. The various output signals (analogue/CANopen) enable the connection to all measurement and control devices of HYDAC ELECTRONIC GmbH and the linkage to commercially available evaluation systems (e.g. SPS controls). The main areas of application are in mobile hydraulics.
High accuracy, e.g. ± 0.05% FS for CANopen
