Linear Position Sensors for High Temperature Environments

Traditional Linear Position Sensor technologies (ie. Magnetostrictive sensors) used in hydraulic cylinders have been limited in their ability to function in high temperature environments. One of the strongest applications for CPI SL series sensors are in these high temperature hydraulics… Continue reading Linear Position Sensors for High Temperature Environments

Waterproof Switches for Specialty Vehicles.

While many of the most demanding applications for our waterproof switches exist in military vehicles, planes, offshore drilling equipment, naval vessels, and mining and drilling equipment, it turns out that our switches have found a home in wide range of… Continue reading Waterproof Switches for Specialty Vehicles.

Linear Position Sensing In Tight Spaces

We’ve said it before but it bears repeating: magnetostrictive sensors are the devil you know, but they aren’t the only game in town… not any more. In fact the need to perfectly core-drill a piston cylinder, the requirements for support… Continue reading Linear Position Sensing In Tight Spaces

A Classic String Pot As Made Today.

Why an SL Series Sensor Is Not A “String Pot”

In the world of hydraulic linear position sensors, the term “string pot” is well known to many engineers. Also known as a draw wire sensor, string encoder or my personal favorite, a “yo yo pot”, these devices have been around… Continue reading Why an SL Series Sensor Is Not A “String Pot”

Linear Position Sensors for Harsh Environments

For many years, hydraulic cylinder manufacturers were forced to forgo accurate, robust hydraulic cylinder position measurement on the largest, most powerful hydraulic systems: you know, the place where it’s needed most? Since these systems are typically operating outdoors, under extremely… Continue reading Linear Position Sensors for Harsh Environments

CPI SnapStat Thermal Cutoff Switches

When Bi-Metal Thermal Switches Are Really The Only Good Solution

In an era where many applications have gone the way of cheap remote sensors and electronics, there is still a place for electromechanical bimetal switches that is cost effective, reliable and in some cases the only solution to complex operational… Continue reading When Bi-Metal Thermal Switches Are Really The Only Good Solution
