Have you Looked At CPI Linear Position Sensors Lately?

For well over a decade, CPI has been manufacturing a unique Hydraulic Cylinder Linear Position sensor, meant for the harshest environments, and longest stroke applications on the planet. We’ve learned a lot over that decade. We’ve not only improved the… Continue reading Have you Looked At CPI Linear Position Sensors Lately?

When Old Technology Becomes New Again – Part II

Two important considerations when looking at the integration of any hydraulic linear position sensor are the underlying technology and the packaging of the transducer. These principles effect size, life, maintainability, and above all, durability. The underlying technology used influences the… Continue reading When Old Technology Becomes New Again – Part II

When Old Technology Becomes New Again…

Interestingly when one looks back at the history of hydraulic position sensing technology some of the earliest ideas from as far back as the 1950’s revolved around both potentiometer based implementations and draw wire systems.  Potentiometer based systems with their… Continue reading When Old Technology Becomes New Again…
