POSICHRON® is an absolute, non-contact and wearfree position measuring system. The key feature of POSICHRON® measuring system is its extreme robustness and the highest resistance to shock up to 50 g. Therefore POSICHRON® sensors are best suited for applications where other measuring principles would fail. The availability of various constructions – rod, square profile and ultra flat profile – means that the system can be adapted to suit all kinds of installation conditions.
Advantages at a glance:
POSICHRON® position sensors can be applied universally. The application range comprises e.g. hydraulic cylinders and presses, liquid level measurement, injection molding machines, dosing and mixing systems, die-casting machines, road vehicle tests, tunneling machines, wind power plants and patient beds.
POSICHRON® position sensors consist of a magnetostrictive wave guide and a noncontact position magnet. To determine the position, a current impulse is sent through the wave guide. This current impulse generates a circular magnetic field which propagates around the wave guide. If this circular magnetic field makes contact with the magnetic field of the movable position magnet, a tensional mechanical-elastic density wave is generated as a result of magnetostriction. A detector in the sensor head detects the arrival of this reflected density way. The position is determined by measuring the time difference between the electrical induction current impulse and the mechanicalelastic density wave generated by the magnet (time-of-flight-principle).
