  • Rugged transducer puts the "thrill " back in thrill ride
    America to switch from potentiometers to Micropulse linear-position transducers from Balluff Inc., Florence, Ky. These noncontact, industrially hardened transducers provide continuous, absolute position and velocity feedback to three hydraulic cylinders, each with an 18-in. "throw " range. This allows
  • Positioning Components
    . A controller then uses a translation table in memory to relate the code read from the transducer into system position. Absolute encoders are available in both rotary and linear optical types. Tachometers are probably the most widely used velocity transducer.
  • Smooth Moves
    here with a magnetostrictive displacement transducer from MTS Systems Corp., New Ulm, Minn., which can interface to a synchronous serial interface port on the computer to measure linear position of actuators such as hydraulic cylinders. The contrasts between a cubic and fifth-order spline become
