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.
- 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
