Safe parallel guidance by integrated position sensor with velocity output. In mobile hydraulics applications, sensors are subject to a cluster of marginal conditions. For this reason, a development focus is on the integration of measurement systems into hydraulic cylinders. Furthermore, in special applications where mobile machines control an overall movement by means of several cylinders, synchronization of movements is required. Therefore, the Temposonics M series are especially made for integration into hydraulic cylinders. The sensor is protected against shock, vibration and extreme environmental conditions and offers an unrivalled measurement rate, outstanding repeatability (> +/- 0.005%) and stable linearity (> 0.04%). External effects on the measurement signal are virtually excluded by interference suppression for HF electric fields up to 200 V/m, vibration resistance up to 30g(av) and shock resistance of more than 100g. Magnetostrictive Temposonics MH sensors also offer continuous measurement of both - position and speed - during the position change. Due to the output of a velocity signal, highly dynamic control of several independent hydraulic cylinders is possible. It enables the power actuators to be developed into complex movement axes and permits realization of high-quality control systems, e.g. for electro hydraulic parallel guidance of excavators or loaders. __________________________________________________
