The SGH50 uses a clever cable mechanism for absolute measurement of hydraulic or telescopic cylinders. The sensor makes it possible to measure distances up to 5 m. Target applications are agricultural machinery, construction machines, municipal vehicles, forestry machines, piston accumulators and other industrial applications.
The SGH50 can be integrated into hydraulic and telescopic cylinders and has a durable design. A special plastic developed specifically for the purpose, which is characterized by an extension of fluid temperature resistance from 85°C to 105°C, is responsible for this.
The SGH50 meets the specifications of the most extreme vibration standards and easily copes with shocks 100 times the force of gravity. Unlike rod-based sensors, its flexible cable completely absorbs vibrations. The hydraulic medium provides additional damping of any vibration.
Analog interfaces, CANopen or SAE J1939 provide the communication between the SGH50 sensor and machine control system. Applications in which maximum functional safety is essential can be supplied with redundant SGH50 versions (CAT3, PLd) in accordance with EN13849. For safety variants, SIKO also offers redundant or analog interfaces, redundant CANopen, redundant SAE J1939 or CANopen-safety.
