Smooth turbine operation through precise control
To ensure that the turbines run smoothly, the position of the guide blades in Kaplan turbines is adjusted as needed. Balluff's externally mounted aluminum profile magnetostrictive linear position sensors enable ganged control of blade angle with a single feedback device.
- Flexible installation: sensor length and operating rod length can be tailored to each application
- Non-contact, wear-free operation for long service life
- Absolute position signal; no homing required after power interruption
- Available for most popular control interfaces
