Rota Engineering Ltd. announces the unveiling of new position sensor features for hydraulic cylinders at CONEXPO/IFPE 2017, booth S84130. These sensors have been designed for ultra-robust environments where the smallest size footprint is required to maintain critical pin-to-pin dimensions of existing cylinders. These sensors are used on mobile cranes, forklifts, telehandlers, scissor lifts, loaders of all kinds, etc. where knowing the cylinder position adds to safety or efficiency.
The latest feature to be released is a field calibrateable sensor. This sensor allows for end users to override the factory calibration and select any portion of the active stroke zone to output a full scale signal to achieve maximum resolution. This feature coupled with the field installable mechanical package allows ultimate flexibility for the OEM, or dealer network, to stock sensors for applications where a smart cylinder is an option.
