Machine and ball screw actuators, fitted with non-contacting,
magnetostrictive position sensors, offer several benefits to the end user:
Analog or digital outputs for position sensing or closed-loop control.
Better repeatability over actuators equipped with linear encoders, potentiometers, or inductive sensors.
Long life and contamination-free operation due to the sensor's fully enclosed, non-contacting design.
