Smart Hydraulic Cylinder Position Sensing
A CPI sensor based smart cylinder design eliminates the vlunerability of external mechanical linkages posed by these problems because its linear displacement transducer can reside completely inside the cylinder. In fact, CPI smart cylinders are not discernable from standard hydraulic cylinders, except for the M12-style electrical connector on the side.
CPI smart cylinders use SL Series linear displacement transducers to provide electronic feedback of piston position. This new, non-contacting, absolute sensor technology was specifically developed to meet the needs of mobile equipment applications.
