Hydraulic Cylinder Position Feedback
November 5, 2010 3 Comments
Today, we’re going back to basics with one of the most common applications for linear position sensors: hydraulic cylinder position feedback.
Magnetostrictive linear position transducers are commonly used in conjunction with hydraulic cylinders to provide continuous, absolute position feedback. Non-contact magnetostrictive technology assures dependable, trouble-free operation. The brief video below illustrates how magnetostrictive position sensors are used with hydraulic cylinders.
