The core sensing technology in the SL1500 like all our sensors, is an LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer). Using our patented Linear to Rotary to Linear differential we are able to translate the large motion of long stroke cylinders into a small displacement measurable by our LVDT with high accuracy.
Our SL series and especially our SL1500, represent a mature class of sensors that are field proven in the high pressure hydraulic environment. This completely non-contacting technology is then hardened for specific environmental requirements allowing it to virtually last forever making it the only sensor in the world specifically designed for the needs of high endurance applications whether on the land, or under the sea.
Both ATEX and IEC-EX certifications are pending.
