December 10, 2001 - Linear Position Sensor mounts completely inside any cylinder and can be configured to cylinder strokes beyond 4 ft. It is virtually immune to shock and vibration, and does not exhibit end-of-stroke dead zone. Sensor is 2.25 in. high x 2.4 in. in diameter, and utilizes precision mechanism that couples translation of hydraulic cylinder to non-contacting sensor element.

Absolute Position Sensing for Any Hydraulic Cylinder

(Archive News Story - Products mentioned in this Archive News Story may or may not be available from the manufacturer.)

Control Products, Inc.
280 Ridgedale Ave.
East Hanover, NJ, 07936

Press release date: December 4, 2001

Control Products, Inc, of East Hanover, NJ has developed the first linear position sensor for hydraulic cylinders which:

* mounts completely inside any cylinder * does not require core drilling of the piston rod * can be configured to cylinder strokes beyond 4 feet * is vehicle hardened; conforms to ASAE EP455 * is virtually immune to shock and vibration * does not exhibit an end-of-stroke dead zone inherent in other sensors

The sensor is about half the size of a soda can (2.25" high x 2.4" dia.), and utilizes a precision mechanism that couples the translation of a hydraulic cylinder to a non-contacting sensor element.

Installation method allows cylinder designs to remain virtually unchanged and the sensor is easily integrated into a high-volume hydraulic cylinder production environment.

The first release of the sensor will accommodate cylinder bores of 3 inches and over, and stroke lengths up to 4 feet.
