Control Products Inc.’s long stroke linear position sensors are built for use in harsh environments including hydraulics, power plants, automation, oil and gas, deep sea applications, and more. To avoid problems that can occur with rod-type designs that use magnetostrictive sensors, the SL Series Sensors take advantage of Macro Sensors Series CD LVDTs. The SL Series Sensor is enclosed in a pressure vessel with a cable that passes through a high-pressure conduit made from standard hydraulic hose. The design works for any stroke length over a 120” sensing range in virtually any accumulator or hydraulic cylinder with almost no modification to the design, most notably without core drilling of the rod.
