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. Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are ideally suited for integration into hydraulic cylinders.
Flight simulators, which prepare pilots for their daily work routine, are moved with the help of highly dynamic hydraulic systems. Our BTL rod magnetostrictive linear position sensor provides support with, among other things, its high sampling rate. It is optimally suited for use in hydraulic drives.
The exact positioning of the patients is indispensable for an efficient and gentle radiation treatment. This is why our BTL magnetostrictive linear position systems are integrated in the hydraulic cylinders of the hexapods. They monitor the movement while measuring in absolute values, thereby making positioning with millimeter accuracy possible.
To reduce the travel time and increase cornering speeds, high-speed trains are tilted up to 8°. Hydraulic cylinders with our redundant BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors ensure optimum angles in every curve. With maximum passenger safety.
