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 high pressure, vibration, and temperatures, existing technologies like magnetostrictive sensors had too many inherent design flaws related to the length of the waveguide, the invasive nature of the installation, and EMI interference, to be at all
