Linear Position Sensors play an important role in factory automation. They provide accurate, reliable, absolute position feedback to help automate today’s sophisticated machinery. Sensors must deliver value, be easy to set up, and interface easily into the host controller.We know the manufacturing challenges of today are extreme, so we designed and built sensors to meet and exceed these demands, regardless of the application or environment. Innovation, proprietary technology and decades of experience were the key to the development of our line of Linear Displacement Transducers.
Path measurement can be solved with various sensors. The inductive linear position sensors operate contactless and wear-free according to a revolutionary measuring principle. The position is not detected via a positioning magnet but via an oscillating RLC circuit. The product portfolio comprises magnetostrictive linear position sensors for position tracking in hydraulic cylinders or encoders for the tracking of floats as well as draw-wire sensors.Over a length of up to 40 meters, path information is transmitted in a highly precise and dynamic manner to the higher-level controller via digital and analog interfaces.
