  • Sensor Technologies to Detect Pneumatic Cylinder Position - White Paper
    Over the years, many users have abandoned the use of reed switches due to their failure rate and have utilized mechanical or inductive sensors to detect pneumatic cylinder position. AMR and GMR sensors are smaller, faster, and easy to integrate and are much more reliable however; they must overcome
  • Pneumatic Cylinders
    sensors over that of linear potentiometers. In recent years, MTS has supported pneumatic cylinder manufacturers in the development of servopneumatic control solutions. In these types of applications we can provide the right combination of performance and outputs like position and velocity.
  • Pneumatic or servo?
    Servosystems are often an economical alternative to pneumatic cylinders. The actuation of cams, detents, and levers has long been the forte of pneumatic or hydraulic systems in machines. These systems are generally open loop. The only verification that the system has executed a command
  • Sorting out the truth about pneumatic standards
    Japanese test methods better predict pneumatic valve performance. SMC follows the latest ISO standards when rating pneumatic valve flow in terms of sonic conductance. Full stroke time of a pneumatic cylinder is inversely proportional to the maximum exhaust flow rate. represents the maximum constant
  • White Paper Making today s pneumatic cylinders work effectively Plant Services
    Pneumatic cylinders continue to provide a valuable and preferred option for linear actuation in many applications. To achieve these unprecedented levels of effectiveness, all portions of the cylinder design must be balanced to reach the desired performance and cost ratio. As you can see from
  • Microwaves for cylinder sensing
    Position sensor works with actuators of any length. A sensor housed in the cylinder endcap measures piston position with accuracy to about 0.1 mm. A simple antenna inside the cylinder transmits electromagnetic waves and receives the reflected signal. Onboard electronics generates position and speed
  • The basics of pneumatic control valves
    Directional valves such as Parker Hannifin's B3G-Series threeway (left) and four-way valves are often used to control pneumatic operations. Directional-control valves are vital in any pneumatic circuit, directing or blocking airflow to control the speed or sequence of operations. One method
  • Sensor Sense: Cylinder-Position Sensors
    Cylinder-position sensors are used in pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. They determine the home and end stroke of the piston head within the cylinder. The difficulty lies in detecting the position of the piston within its cylindrical housing. Magnets placed within the piston head let magnetic
