Alliance Sensors releases MHP Inductive Linear Position Sensor

Tuesday, Aug 18, 2015

Alliance Sensors releases MHP in-cylinderinductive linear position sensor that easily adapts to existing hydraulic cylinder designs.

These compact sensors are designed to be installed into the rear endcap of hydraulic cylinders for operation at pressures up to 5000psig. Their 1-inch hex aluminum or stainless steel housing are ideal for mobile hydraulics, factory automation machinery, or oil and gas exploration equipment, and mount to the cylinder with a standard male o-ring port thread.
Features of the MHP-7:

• No magnet required
• Compact 1-inch hex aluminum or stainless steel housing
• Contactless- no wear from cycling or dithering
• Ranges from 25 to 600 mm (1 to 24 inches)
• Excellent stroke-to-length ratio
• SenSet for field scalability of analog output

The MHP-7 series sensors are based on a proprietary contactless inductive sensing technology with a short stroke to length ratio. They employ a 7 mm diameter probe inserted into an 8 mm (5/16 inch) gun-drilled hole in the cylinder rod to measure position rather than a ring magnet or pot contact spool. They are offered in ranges from 25 to 600mm (1 to 24 inches) full scale with a wide variety of on analog I/Os and either connector and cable terminations.

The MHP-7 series also includes the MR-7 and ME-7 series for larger cylinders and actuators and the SS-7 for subsea applications.
