CPI Linear Position Sensor Applications

Since we introduced our first LVDT based position sensors back in 1997, we’ve learned a lot about how to refine and extend this technology into some amazing industrial applications. Originally developed for the mobile hydraulics market, CPI sensors have evolved to find uses in many different industries where reliable operation, long stroke lengths and design flexibility are primary requirements. Here are just a few of the many places our unique LVDT sensor design has been


Applying Smart Hydraulic Cylinders

What is a Smart (Hydraulic) Cylinder?

Smart hydraulic cylinders gain their name from the fact that highly accurate position sensing electronics are integrated with the hydraulics in a single actuator.  Thus these cylinders are “smart” about understanding cylinder position allowing robust position information to be fed to more complex feedback systems.
