16 series Linear Magnetostrictive Sensor

The Germanjet 16 series Absolute Position Sensor is designed for hydraulic cylinder with limited head space or clevis rod ends hydraulic cylinder. Sensing rod is made by stainless steel which installed inside the hydraulic cylinder. It has a wide variety of signal output selection included analogue voltage, current and SSI. It is a perfect combination with hydraulic valve to form a close-loop servo hydraulic system.

It adopts the non-contact magnetostrictive to provide feedback of fluid level and multi-interface level of storage tank or process vessel. The non-contact feature provides exceptional ease of installation and guarantees almost unlimited mechanical life expectancy. The high versatile IP67 profile housing offers full protection against outside agents for use in harsh environments with high contamination and presence of dust.

Description

The Germanjet 16 series Absolute Position Magnetostrictive Sensor is designed for hydraulic cylinder with limited head space or clevis rod ends hydraulic cylinder. Sensing rod is made by stainless steel which installed inside the hydraulic cylinder. It has a wide variety of signal output selection included analogue voltage, current and SSI. It is a perfect combination with hydraulic valve to form a close-loop servo hydraulic system.

It adopts the 16 series non-contact magnetostrictive to provide feedback of fluid level and multi-interface level of storage tank or process vessel. The non-contact feature provides exceptional ease of installation and guarantees almost unlimited mechanical life expectancy. The high versatile IP67 profile housing offers full protection against outside agents for use in harsh environments with high contamination and presence of dust.

Magnetostrictive technology utilises 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.
