HLT range of sensors HYDAC Solutions

Linear Position Transmitter HLT 2500

The sensor works on the principle of magnetostriction. This measuring principle determines with high accuracy the position, distance and/ or speed and is based on elapsed time measurement. Utilising this non-contact and wear-free measuring system, Hydac offers a version in an Aluminium profile housing or a flat profile housing. The different output signals (analogue current / voltage) enable connection to all HYDAC ELECTRONIC GmbH measurement and control devices as well as standard evaluation systems (e.g. PLC controls). External set inputs for the analogue start point and end point offer an additional possibility of a customised adjustment. The HLT 2500 is primarily used in stationary applications, especially when a partially integrated solution in hydraulic cylinders is not possible.


Triple Sensor HLT 1300

The linear position transmitter HLT 1300 with integrated pressure and temperature measurement function has ben specially developed due to the growing demands in the field of linear position measurement. The measured values such as linear position, pressure and temperature are simultaneously digitised and made available to the CANopen Safety protocol in a highly dynamic and safe way. 

Linear Position
HLT 700

The measuring principle of the sensor for determination of position or distance is based on a magnetic-inductive principle. Based on such non-contact and wear-free measuring system, HYDAC offer a version in a pressure-resistant housing for full integration in hydraulic cylinders. The various output signals (e. g. analogue, or CANopen) enable the connection to all HYDAC ELECTRONIC measuring and control units as well as the linkage to other commonly used evaluation systems (e.g. SPS controls). Linear position sensors HLT 700 are suitable for a wide range of applications as from standard applications up to diagnostic applications. HLT 700 have particularly been designed to be integrated into small size cylinders. With rod diameter of 8 mm and head diameter of 24 mm they are integrated space saving.
