Magnetostrictive transducers - overview of characteristics

Magnetostrictive transducers are used at hydraulic cylinders for level measurement and automation. They work under pressures of up to 350 bar. Magnetostrictive sensors measure contactless and allow for wear-free distance measurement.

If you seek more information about magnetostrictive transducers feel free to contact our consulting team or our distribution partners worldwide. An overview of typical applications of magnetostrictive sensors can be found on the applications subpage.
