Remote sensor for hydraulic cylinders and accumulators — What we’ve done is simply mount our SL Series sensor core into a pressure vessel, which can be remote mounted.
When Magnetostrictive sensors fail, our product is a form-fit-function replacement at both the cylinder, and the electronic interface.
