BTL rod Micropulse position measurement system
The feedback system for hydraulic axes integrated into the pressure area of the cylinder

  • Pressure rated to 1000 bar for powerful high-pressure cylinders
  • Analogue, digital, fieldbuses, Ethernet variants: Construction time is reduced thanks to the variety of interfaces on the same mechanical adaptor
  • International EX approvals for use worldwide
  • In a 34 mm stainless-steel housing for compact cylinders

Application example

Hydraulic cylinder with Micropulse compact feedback system

Motor feedback system with the BML code disc

BML S1-G Feedback-System for direct drives up to 48 m – multi-rotor compatible

This high-precision position measurement system for larger strokes is capable of absolute measurements and is multi-rotor compatible. This means that the system provides reference points immediately after it is switched on, and can measure multiple rotors moving on a single stator at the same time.

  • The system has a resolution of up to 1 µm, increasing drive efficiency and quality
  • Accelerated production thanks to high dynamics and speed
  • Equipped with a variety of interfaces (SSI, BISS-C, SIN/COS, ABZ) to facilitate data communication with minimal interference

Application example

Direct drive with magnetically coded distance measurement: BML S1G

BML code disc absolute feedback system – fully integrated

The BML Permagnet encoder feedback is an alternative to conventional magnetic, inductive or optical solutions for precisely controlling motors or drives.

  • Absolute measuring system: No need for a laborious reference point approach
  • Small design: Easy to integrate for compact drives
  • Eccentric sensor position: Not affected by concentricity tolerances
  • Resistant to dirt and deposits: High operational reliability
