MTM-A Magnetic translational measuring system Absolute Position detection on hydraulic cylinders

The MTM-A-000 measuring system is based on the physical principle of magnetism and is used for high-precision detection of position, distance and/or speed. The contactless and thus wear-free working absolute measuring system is suitable for fixed round rod profiles - for example with non-rotating piston rods on hydraulic cylinders in mobile automation.

  • Absolute position / path detection on round profile rods
  • Wear-free, contactless measurement principle
  • Very robust and proven measuring technology
  • Insensitive to contamination
  • High shock and vibration resistance
  • Interface: Analog output or CANopen
  • Power supply 10 … 30 VDC
