In a previous blog post, we looked at the basic operating principle of magnetostriction and how it is applied in a linear position transducer. In this post we’re going to take a more in-depth look at this popular sensing technique … Continue reading
Magnetostriction is a property of ferromagnetic (iron-based, magnetizeable) materials that causes them to change their shape or dimensions in the presence of a magnetic field. In addition to numerous other practical uses, this magnetostrictive effect is ideally suited for use … Continue reading
Our modern technological society owes a lot to the scientific work and inspiration of a 17th-century French mathematician and physicist, Blaise Pascal. Pascal was a pioneer in the fields of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, which deal with the subject of fluid … Continue reading
In a previous Sensortech post entitled “Hydraulic Cylinder Position Feedback“, we discussed the basic concept of hydraulic cylinder position feedback. In case you might have missed that post, here it is for an encore appearance. Magnetostrictive linear position transducers are commonly … Continue reading
Pages upon pages of information could be devoted to exploring the various products and technologies used for liquid level sensing and monitoring. But we’re not going to do that in this article. Instead, as a starting point, we’re going to … Continue reading
Here on SensorTech, we frequently talk about the need for high performance, rugged, reliable position feedback in modern industrial applications. A recent article in Valve Magazine, entitled “The Case for Magnetostrictive” illustrates how linear feedback transducers using non-contact magnetostrictive technology help … Continue reading
I recently ran across an interesting article that explored some of the factors involved in selecting hydraulic cylinders. The article, entitled “3 Steps to Choosing the Right Hydraulic Cylinder” was very informative and helpful. But what if you need a … Continue reading
