ASM Sensors Inc. unveiled a new magnetostrictive position sensor that eliminates the need for users of hydraulics to open a cylinder in order to replace the sensor. Known as the PCST25, the new sensor is installed directly into a hydraulic cylinder, but allows for easy removal of the device's printed circuit board and sensing element. As a result, it prevents spillage of hydraulic fluid, making it a strong candidate for mobile hydraulic applications. "Take out a few screws, and you can easily remove the electronics," notes Fred Fiedler, applications engineer for ASM. For more information on ASM sensors, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-552.
