Probe Sensor Measures Hydraulic Cylinders And Fluid Levels

The new PCST27 Series magnetostrictive position sensors allow for precise positioning of hydraulic cylinders or fluid-level measurements.

Designed specifically for use inside large hydraulic cylinders, the device’s rod-profile design lets it install in the cylinder and detect piston positions with high precision even under difficult conditions.

The sensors consist of a magnetostrictive waveguide and a movable position magnet. A seawater-resistant stainless-steel housing lets the sensor work in offshore locations.

Features include pressure resistance up to 15 bar; absolute output linearity up to ±0.02% full scale; available measurement lengths from 0 to 100 or 0 to 5,750 mm; and either an analog (with 0.5 to 10 V or 4 to 20 mA), a pulse (start/stop), or SSI output.
