Continuous measurements on industrial machines or the materials that these machines are making, moving, or processing can be categorized into two main types of sensors: position measurement sensors, and distance measurement sensors. It’s a somewhat subtle distinction, but one that … Continue reading
Hydraulic actuators can be used to open and close a valve’s position. In automation architectures, a linear position sensor is used within the hydraulic actuator to provide continuous position feedback. The linear position sensor is installed into the back end … Continue reading
Over the last few years there has been a lot of discussion on how we will meet the global energy demand in the future. And what will be the technologies to generate it? In the end it all comes down to … Continue reading
Motion control system designers have found a way to eliminate or reduce common sources of position error, such as mechanical backlash, non-linearity, and hysteresis. The method is called direct load position sensing and it employs linear encoders as a source of … Continue reading
