With the SX 300, WayCon offers cylinder manufacturers a low-cost and easy-to-install way to measure the piston stroke of large cylinders
With the SX 300, WayCon Positionsmesstechnik has developed an extremely robust draw wire sensor especially for stroke measurement in hydraulic and telescopic cylinders.
With a measurement range of up to 15 metres, the SX 300 is ideal for use in “large applications”, for example dams, sluice gates, drawbridges, cranes or when constructing wind turbines.
Thanks to its pressure-proof casing, the SX 300 can be mounted directly on the face of the cylinder. The stainless-steel measuring rope is simply attached to the piston and held tightly by a spring in the sensor.
The sensor element, a digital encoder, is located outside of the pressure area and provides data about the position of the piston with the utmost precision and resolution. The output signals can be freely selected from SSI, Profibus, CANopen, Profinet or EtherCAT and therefore offer maximum flexibility in the selection of control concepts.
The dynamic and robust sensors also allow for fast cylinder movements, are designed for operating pressures of up to 300 bar and are suitable for ambient temperatures of -20°C to +70°C.
As a consequence, and thanks to their reliability, they can be used in all industrial sectors. Traditional applications include, for example, stroke measurement of hydraulic weir gates or synchronisation monitoring of parallel cylinder arrangements.

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...
Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
