LVDT Based Position Sensors Offer Greater Longevity In Harsh Environments

Accurate sensing of linear position in hydraulic cylinders takes on more complex design considerations when targeting applications where a rugged outdoor environment is the operational norm. Environmental considerations include:

  1. Heat – Not just ambient temperatures but the temperature of hydraulic fluid rises with continued operation and can


Momentary Switches for Extreme Duty – Reducing Failure Rates

Momentary Switch Design Parameters Extreme duty applications that require a momentary switch with ultra harsh environmental and duty cycle requirements  call for more than just a “weatherproof” or “splashproof” rated component. For more than 40 years CPI’s has made precisely engineered waterproof switches for the
