Alliance Sensors Group, a div of H.G. Schaevitz LLC has expanded its in-cylinder position sensor product line to include the MHP-7 series linear inductive sensors. These compact inductive linear sensors were 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 include:
- No magnet required
- Compact 1-in. 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-7series 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 in.) 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 in.) 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.
