MOTION CONTROL: Balluff’s new Micropulse® ProCompact linear position transducer is rugged, accurate and protected against environmental hazards. The rod-style transducer incorporates field-proven, non-contact magnetostrictive technology into a welded, hermetically sealed, stainless-steel housing that provides long-term reliability and service life compared to competing contact-based sensors such as linear or rotary potentiometers. The ProCompact is ideal for hydropower and other wet applications, railroad maintenance equipment, steel production, sawmill applications, or any other application involving high humidity, ambient temperature variations and high pressure washdown. The Micropulse ProCompact linear position transducer comes in standard ¾ inch -16 UNF (optional M18 x 1.5) mounting threads, allowing the transducer to be installed into hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. It is environmentally protected to IP68.
The transformative nature of designing and making things was the overarching, common theme at separate conferences held in Boston by two giants in the PLM space: Autodesk, with its Accelerate 2015, and Siemens’s Industry Analyst Conference 2015.
