Turck Linear Position Sensors Specifications
Path measurement can be solved with various sensors. The inductive linear position sensors operate contactless and wear-free according to a revolutionary measuring principle. The position is not detected via a positioning magnet but via an oscillating RLC circuit. The product portfolio comprises magnetostrictive linear position sensors for position tracking in hydraulic cylinders or encoders for the tracking of floats as well as draw-wire sensors.
Over a length of up to 40 meters, path information is transmitted in a highly precise and dynamic manner to the higher-level controller via digital and analog interfaces.
Position sensing systems are available in most varying designs and applications; from potentiometers, over magnetostrictive sensors up to high-resolution glass scales. The inductive linear position sensor by Turck operates on the basis of a completely new, revolutionary measuring principle.
The positive features of standard measuring systems are combined and systematically developed further. The position is not detected via a positioning magnet but via an inductive oscillating circuit. The sensor is thus completely immune to magnetic fields which are generated by large motors.
