Micropulse Transducers Your first choice for the measurement of long strokes in harsh conditions

  • Overview

Balluff Micropulse® magnetostrictive linear position transducers provide highly accurate and reliable position control signals. Balluff’s non-contact magnetostrictive technology means performance does not degrade over time, as with linear potentiometers. Micropulse® transducers have proven themselves in demanding industrial position monitoring and measurement applications.

    Benefits

  • High resolution, repeatability, and linearity
  • Resistant to shock, vibration and electrical interference
  • Wide variety of housing styles and electrical interfaces
  • Stroke lengths from 1" to 300"
  • Absolute output signals, even after power interruption; no re-homing necessary

    Applications / Industries

  • Position feedback for closed-loop control of hydraulic cylinders
    o Windpower, steel mills, sawmill equipment, motion simulators, mobile (offroad) equipment
  • Monitoring of linear movements on plastics and rubber manufacturing machinery
  • Position monitoring and control on packaging and automated assembly machinery
  • Precision fill-level and dosing
  • Anywhere highly precise, absolute linear position feedback is required
