ASG offers inductive linear position sensors specifically designed for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder and actuators. These sensors are typically a form and fit equivalent to magnetostrictive sensors and can be adapted to replace potentiometer type sensors with port mounting or embedded into the cylinder or actuator. Using a proprietary inductive technology rather than time of flight or resistive making these sensors a much more rugged, contactless device. Calibration is simple using the SenSet™ feature to set the end positions after installation. These sensors do not require a magnet or special calibration accessory and no wearout issues associated with potentiometers.
