The SL6000 Subsea Draw Wire Breaks the 100 Ft Barrier
Engineering Marvel – The CPI SL6000 30 Meter Hardened Linear Position Sensor Since the introduction of our SL series hardened draw-wire Linear Position Sensors almost 20 years ago, we’ve learned a lot about long stroke hydraulics from our hydraulic cylinder… Continue reading The SL6000 Subsea Draw Wire Breaks the 100 Ft Barrier
Motion Compensation System Hydraulics Can Get A Whole Lot Smarter.
The environment in which the search for oil is conducted beneath the surface of the seas is ever changing and often treacherous. It changes constantly due to the ebb and flow of the surface of the water and operation during… Continue reading Motion Compensation System Hydraulics Can Get A Whole Lot Smarter.
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… Continue reading CPI Linear Position Sensor Applications
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… Continue reading Applying Smart Hydraulic Cylinders
