Position detection of the piston in the hydraulic cylinder
In order to detect the piston position of hydraulic cylinders, magnetostrictive and inductive sensors are directly integrated in the sensor. Therefore, the magneto-inductive sensor mainSENSOR is an alternative. The face-mounted magnet transfers its magnetic field to the piston rod. The sensor mounted outside then detects the magnetic field distribution along the rod and converts this into a linear output signal, which corresponds to the piston position.
