Conventional steering cylinders can now be monitored by a linear transducer.
Hydraulic cylinder users are always looking for a more cost effective method of fitting linear transducers as deep hole drilling can be particularly expensive.
Now Rota, using patent applied for technology, have designed a linear transducer that can be simply mounted externally onto a standard carbon steel cylinder wall. The cylinder position is measured when a magnet, pre-fitted in
the piston, is moved by hydraulic pressure.
