High pressure resistant sensor for manual punch-riveting tool

A German manufacturer of cold-forming tools for joining sheet metal uses position sensing to control the operation of a manual punch-riveting tool. A high-pressure inductive sensor mounted directly into the wall of a small pneumohydraulic cylinder detects the position of the hydraulic ram, preventing the operating cycle from starting unless the ram is fully retracted.…

Rugged inductive sensor measures rotation velocity of wind turbine blades

Modern wind turbines operate continuously in remote, highly demanding environments. Exceptional reliability is essential as opportunities for maintenance are limited. Turbine rotation velocity is a key operating parameter and manufacturers require robust sensor systems that provide accurate measurement in real-time. Rugged presence-sensing systems withstand harsh exposed conditions, both onshore and offshore, while delivering the required…
