Position detection in hydraulic cylinders

11.09.2015

Integrated position detection with the patented Draw Wire Encoder SX200

The patented SX200 is one of the few Draw Wire Encoders that can be integrated into hydraulic cylinders and can measure a stroke of up to 12m. No other measurement principle reaches this measuring range without removing the cylinder, with a simultaneous integration of the measuring system.


Integrated position detection with the patented Draw Wire Encoder SX200up

Due to the way the hydraulic cylinder is assembled, the entire measuring system is optimally protected. The SX200 is remarkably suited to application in confined spaces. The measuring cable is connected to the piston and is pulled from the sensor during the operation of the cylinder.

In the sensor itself, the measuring cable is coiled around a cable sheave, which rotates with each cylinder stroke, thereby turning the linear movement into a rotation. Through a sealed shaft (pressure implementation) the rotary movements are directed outwards into an unpressurized area and recorded by a sensor element (e.g. a digital absolute rotary encoder).

Through the evaluation of sensor signals, not only is the position of the piston rod regulated, but the specific cylinder positions are also recorded and the synchronic movement of multiple cylinders is ensured. The highly dynamic sensors also allow for rapid cylinder movements during this process.

The compact casing, as well as adaptation to customer needs, qualify this sensor technology for multiple areas of application. Thanks to its robust construction and high quality, the sensor can be employed in harsh industrial environments.

Typical applications for the Draw Wire Encoder SX200 are: Hydraulic gates on dams; monitoring of simultaneously running cylinders; regulation and monitoring of traverse speed.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
