Control Products Inc. Provides Unique Solution to Hydraulic Cylinder Position Sensing


East Hanover, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2014 -- Control Products Inc. of East Hanover New Jersey has introduced its SL series linear position sensor line for hydraulic cylinders and accumulators. The new products represent a major evolution in the durability of sensors used in harsh environments and are designed to drop-in replace other types of hydraulic cylinder position sensors in the field. For long stroke or telescoping cylinders used in high temperature, high vibration, or underwater environments, these sensors outperform and outlast all other traditional sensor technologies, and are a drop in replacement for failure prone magnetostrictive “rod-type” sensors.

CPI sensors use a unique LVDT (linear variable differential transformer) implementation which is inherently immune to heat and vibration. Vice President Mac Stuhler of CPI describes their solution as completely non-contacting and able to provide absolute cylinder position. According to Stuhler “Unlike conventional in-cylinder displacement transducers, no center drilling of the rod is required. This provides a huge reduction in installation cost because so little modification to the cylinder is needed.”

CPI’s SL series sensors come in a variety of form factors and can be mounted in or outside the cylinder including on the oil or the gas side.
