For 55 years, SIKO GmbH has been the perfect partner for precisely measuring a wide range of parameters - from distances, angles and gradients to speeds and velocities. Building on this core expertise, the company has turned its attention to developing and manufacturing pioneering measuring devices and positioning systems for Industry 4.0 automation processes. It has chosen HANNOVER MESSE 2018 to unveil its impressive new SGH25 wire-actuated encoder.
This new device boasts a measuring range of up to 2.5 meters and an exceptionally long service life. Key features include its newly developed plastic, which not only ensures a robust structure but also extends the fluid temperature range from 85 to 105 degrees Celsius. The SGH25’s wide variety of interfaces meet the most stringent of requirements, even in safety-critical applications. This makes the wire-based position sensor ideal for applications in mobile machines such as excavators, dumper trucks and agricultural machinery. As with all the models in the SGH series, the SGH25 can also be integrated directly into a hydraulic cylinder to determine its position and transmit data directly to the machine control system via integrated communication protocols.
