The linear position sensors from HYDAC ELECTRONIC are used for high-definition measurement of position, length of travel or speed.
These non-contact and wear-free sensors based on run-time measurement operate according to the principle of magnetostriction and can be used across all sectors, both industrial and mobile. Depending on the application and the usage requirements, various different types are available with measuring ranges from 50 mm to 4000 mm.
The ultrasonic distance sensors are contact-free, highly-compact sensors for measuring the distance to liquids and objects. They operate with an extremely high resolution and measurement rate and they are available for measurement ranges of up to 6000 mm
Our position and distance sensors are available in a variety of electrical output signal combinations (analogue / digital), the position sensors can also be supplied with a field bus interface such as SSI, Profibus, CANopen, amongst others, depending on the model and version.
