Detecting end-of-stroke positions
Detecting end positions

Balluff sensor technologies can detect the end positions of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Our sensors reliably detect valve, positions and the end positions of linear or rotary movements.

Application examples

Spindle position detection
Error proofing your packaging line
Regulation of air and gas supply in blast furnaces
Discrete position detection for coke oven machinery
Lifting and lowering drawbridges
Core pull end position detection
Detecting extend/retract on pneumatic cylinders
Monitor operation of debris screen rakes
Hydraulic pitch control for turbine blades
