Magnetostrictive linear position transducer with integrated PROFIBUS DP from Balluff


 


Florence, KY (May 3, 2011): In automation applications there is the ever growing need to know exactly what is happening on the machine at every moment of the process.  The ability to know in exactly what position a moving device is located is a valuable piece of information for anyone trying to precisely integrate motion control.  Whether the feedback is mounted inside of a hydraulic cylinder or mounted on the side of a linear actuator, position data can be transmitted using analog signals or over an industrial network.


 


The Micropulse magnetostrictive linear position transducers (Profile and Rod-Style) with integrated PROFIBUS DP interface allow simultaneous processing of up to 4 positions and their respective velocities.


          The maximum cycle time for data transmission is 1 ms.
