Premium class position measurement for dynamics and safety
Intelligent hydraulic cylinders with integrated position measurement systems form the core of motion platforms, which play an important role in industry and research. Whether for the development of new vehicles, training for pilots, shipping or medical technology – the cylinders, with their position measurement systems, guarantee dynamic control and, in particular, safe operation of the platforms in a wide variety of research areas. Balluff Micropulse magnetostrictive linear position sensors are ideally suited for integration into hydraulic cylinders.
To reduce the travel time and increase cornering speeds, high-speed trains are tilted up to 8° when negotiating curves. Hydraulic cylinders with Balluff Micropulse magnetostrictive linear position sensors ensure optimum angles in every curve. The result is increased passenger comfort and safety
The exact positioning of the patients is indispensable for an efficient and effective radiation treatment. Balluff Micropulse linear position sensors, integrated into hydraulic positioning cylinders, provide extremely precise position feedback. The result is the ability to optimally position the patient while undergoing treatment.
Flight simulators, which prepare pilots for their daily work routine, are moved with the help of highly dynamic hydraulic systems. Balluff Micropulse rod-style magnetostrictive linear position sensors provide accurate, absolute position feedback in highly dynamic hydraulic flight simulators. Micropulse linear position sensors are ideal for use in closed-loop servohydraulic systems.
