When maintenance technicians replace linear position sensors (also known as probes or wands) from hydraulic cylinders, it can leave a terrible mess, waste hydraulic oils, and expose the individual to harmful hot fluids. Also, the change out process can expose … Continue reading
Example of a Flexible EOA Tool with 8 sensors connected with an Inductive Coupling System. Over the years I’ve interviewed many customers regarding End-Of-Arm (EOA) tooling. Most of the improvements revolve around making the EOA tooling smarter. Smarter tools mean … Continue reading
In a previous entry, I discussed how linear position sensors are used with hydraulic cylinders to provide continuous position feedback. While this is certainly one of the most common ways linear position sensors are used, there are many applications for … Continue reading
I received a call the other day from a customer who wanted to use a magnetic field sensor on a cylinder, and evidently was requiring very precise results. His aksed “what is the hysteresis of your sensors? I notice that it is listed in your catalog as a percentage and I need to know the exact value in millimeters.” My response was, “well it depends”, upon which he was not overly pleased. I then continued to explain my answer which leads me to the contents of this posting. Continue reading
