ASM Sensors’ PCST27 POSICHRON magnetostrictive position sensors feature a rod-profile design that provides ease of installation and enables precise positioning of hydraulic cylinders or measurement of fluid levels. The sensors consist of a magnetostrictive waveguide and a movable position magnet. Based on magnetically generated density waves and the measurement of time pulses, this measurement principle is ideal for applications that demand extreme precision, repeatability, and resistance against environmental factors such as vibration, humidity, or shock. The sensors are available up to protection class IP68 and are pressure resistant to 15 bar. The absolute output offers linearity to ± 0.02% full scale. Measurement lengths from 0 to 100 or from 0 to 5750 mm are featured.
