Cylinder feedback system

Published:  01 August, 2014

Balluff says with its “ProCompact” Micropulse transducer sensor specialist and connectivity provider it sets new standards for outdoor use of magnetostrictive linear transducer systems.

The new system features a rugged, fully welded stainless steel housing with stainless thread fitting which makes it easy to adapt a cable protection system. With a protection rating of IP 67 or IP 69K the transducer is said to be the ideal solution when the piston position in hydraulic cylinders needs to be precisely detected even under the harshest conditions.

The company says user measures such as a separate housing, protective pint or special threaded fittings and cabling are entirely eliminated. The ProCompact is reported to be ready to use without any special adaptations. Ideal applications include hydro-electric, offshore equipment and outdoor hydraulic valves and drives.

Thanks to its high precision and reliability, the transducer is also found often in safety-relevant areas such as retensioning devices with overhead power lines or hydraulically driven large valves.
