Water-jet propulsion system control

Water-jet propulsion system control

Precise hydraulic cylinder position feedback, even under adverse conditions

The solution

Water-jet propulsion systems are used for high speeds at heavy seas or for maneuverability when traveling slowly. The hydraulic cylinders that control the infeed must be able to respond quickly and reliably to control inputs. Balluff Micropulse linear position sensors, which are fully integrated into the cylinders, reliably measure these movements, and provide the position feedback required for precise operation.

The features

  • Can be completely integrated into the cylinder
  • Resistant stainless steel
  • Accessories for the pass-thru of the cable through the cylinder are available (stainless steel, IP67)
Ensure maneuverability at heavy seas
