Linear position sensor with double or triple redundancy in a single housing

Multiple measuring systems pperate in single sensor housing

Fail-safe position measurement with digital interfaces

Our redundant magnetostrictive linear position sensors are now available in two digital interface versions: SSI and Start/Stop pulse. This meets the highest requirements for safety and availability. They are less noise susceptible than traditional analog interfaces while offering greater resolution. Moreover, they deliver up to 1000 Hz sampling frequency for fast data acquisition.

With up to three independent measuring systems operating concurrently in one housing, they ensure uninterrupted processing. Pressure rated to 600 bar, they are well suited for use in valves and hydraulic cylinders where safety is an issue. An IP67 rating means they are insensitive to contamination and can stand up to harsh environments. To meet your individual requirements, you can choose from various form factors and measuring ranges between 25 and 7620 mm.

Like all our magnetostrictive linear position sensors, these feature high repeatability and are wear free thanks to non-contact measurement.
