Magnetostrictive Position Sensor Replacement – Part II

As mentioned in our last post Magnetostrictive Linear Position Sensors are a common type of position sensor for hydraulic cylinders where high resolution is of primary concern.  The sensor incorporates a stainless steel tubular probe (ie. “the Rod”) and is surrounded by a short toroidal

Magnetostrictive Position Sensor Replacement Considerations

One of the prevalent piston position measurement technologies used for mobile hydraulic cylinders is based on the Magnetostrictive properties of ferromagnetic metals. The physics of these sensors is quite complicated, taking advantage of something called the Villari and Wiedemann effects to produce an ultrasonic wave
