13 series Linear Magnetostrictive Sensor

The Germanjet 13 series Absolute Position sensor is designed in strict accordance with the requirement of the mobile machinery industry. Its compact shape can be fully integrated with the hydraulic cylinder with limited head space. The high versatile IP68 profile housing offers full protection for use in harsh environments with high contamination and presence of dust. If the hydraulic cylinder is used with a special connector, the protection level is up to IP69K. Vibration and shock rating are also high-level 25g / 10-2000Hz and 100g (single shock).

It adopts the non-contact magnetostrictive measuring technology for precise, accurate and absolute measurement. The non-contact feature provides exceptional ease of installation and guarantees almost unlimited mechanical life expectancy.

Description

The Germanjet 13 series Absolute Position Magnetostrictive sensor is designed in strict accordance with the requirement of the mobile machinery industry. Its compact shape can be fully integrated with the hydraulic cylinder with limited head space. The high versatile IP68 profile housing offers full protection for use in harsh environments with high contamination and presence of dust. If the hydraulic cylinder is used with a special connector, the protection level is up to IP69K. Vibration and shock rating are also high-level 25g / 10-2000Hz and 100g (single shock).

The linear 13 series adopts the non-contact magnetostrictive measuring technology for precise accurate, and absolute measurement. The non-contact feature provide exceptional ease of installation and guarantees almost unlimited mechanical life expectancy.

Magnetostrictive technology utlises a fundamental principle of the Germanjet position transducer by analysing the feedback sonic wave induced by an interaction of two magnetic fields. The first magnetic field is produced by the moveable magnetic cursor which is attached at the moving component of a machine. The second field is generated by the pulse initiator. After the two magnetic fields interact, a sonic wave is induced and detected by the sonic wave analyser.

The advantages of Magnetostrictive Sensing:

  • Germanjet transducer adopted the non-contact ultrasonic measuring technology for precise, direct and absolute measurement.
  • The absence of electrical contact on the cursor eliminates all wear and guarantees almost unlimited mechanical life expectancy.
  • The non-contact (floating) cursor provides exceptional ease of installation with a variety of available cursor position target.
  • The high versatile profile housing offers full protection against outside agents for use in harsh environments with high contamination and presence of dust. Mounting is accomplished using clamps that allow precise mechanical adjustment.
