Features & benefits

  • Cost-effective alternative to custom designs; common parts approach; Hall Effect sensor

  • Common solenoid valve pole tube and adaptor assembly on the opposite ends of a coupling tube, which contains an elongated plunger: New coupling tube, sensor, and sensor housing for use in valves (10 to 16 sizes)

  • Coupling tube containing the sensing element allows manual override; poppet compensates for overlap — preventing faulty detection in case of leakage

  • Suitable for monitoring lifting and lowering, machine state, multiple steering modes, and dual redundancy operation of hydraulic presses and other equipment
