SL Series Linear Position Sensors

CPI’s SL Series Linear Position Sensors represent a unique offering in the marketplace. Our hardened design and patented LVDT based operation allow our sensors to provide reliable and accurate position sensing in virtually any hydraulic cylinder. These sensors are also ideal for piston accumulators and can be mounted on the gas or oil side as they are completely submersible.

Internal Mount Sensor

Internal Mount Sensor Straight-forward flange mount allows for easy installation of this highly integrated sensor. Again, no gun drilling required, highly immune to shock and vibration, one sensor for any stroke length up to 120″. Please consult factory for longer stroke lengths.

Magnetostrictive Sensor Direct Replacement

Magnetostrictive Sensor Direct Replacement Where a rod-type magnetostrictive sensor fails, this product is a drop-in replacement. A single part number covers all stroke lengths up to 120”. A patented self-locking cable connector installs into the gun-drilled rod and the flexible conduit screws into the existing sensor port (typically 18mm or #8 SAE O ring port), facilitating field replacement of rod-type sensors.

Long Stroke Sensors

Long Stroke Sensors The natural extension for CPI’s SL Series linear position sensors has always been to increase the sensing range. Enter the SL1300, which is capable of stroke lengths to 23 feet, utilizing the same SL Series non-contacting technology. Beefed-up stainless steel construction, including a robust braided cable make this extensometer ideal for demanding applications where long life is required in a harsh environment. As with all SL Series position transducer sensors, high shock and vibration immunity come standard, and there is no core drilling of the piston rod in hydraulic cylinder sensors and applications.

Sensors for Harsh Environments

Sensors for Harsh Environments CPI SL Series linear position sensors can now be deployed in extremely harsh environments. Operating in temperatures up to 300F and pressures to 8,000 psi, these extreme sensors bring position sensing to applications where it was not previously possible. Comprised of stainless steel components and a proprietary combination of engineered materials allows for operation in a diverse variety of fluids / environments, including water-based hydraulic fluid. As with all SL Series linear displacement sensors, high shock and vibration immunity come standard, and there is no core drilling of the piston rod in hydraulic cylinder sensors and applications.
