Reliable cylinder sensors

With reliable cylinder sensors, hydraulic systems master the greatest challenges. For optimum regulation of complex hydraulic systems, we integrate a broad spectrum of sensors in our hydraulic cylinders.

Sensors allow (partially) automated processes/procedures to be realised that increase the productivity of mobile machinery, among other things. Furthermore, we prepare our products for Industrie 4.0. The use of sensors is indispensable for safety-critical applications, too.
