Hydraulic sensor SX300

25.01.2016

The extremely robust wire rope sensor SX300 by WayCon was developed specifically for measuring travel in hydraulic and telescopic cylinders. Using the SX300 when measuring the travel of hydraulic cylinders in embankment dam lock gates is now demonstrated in an application video.

Hydraulic cylinders open and close the lock gates and must sustain substantial water pressure in the process. The wire rope sensor is used to control and monitor the movement speed and acceleration of the cylinders.

The pressure-tight housing allows the sensor to be flange-mounted directly to the cylinder and the stainless steel measuring rope is simply secured to the piston. The sensor element, an absolute rotary encoder in the pressure-free range, provides precise information about the piston position with pinpoint accuracy and resolution.
