Hydraulic cylinders are key components for efficiency-raising assistance systems and automation solutions in mobile machinery.
Our LiView position transducer provides you with the necessary real-time data on the position and speed of the piston – with added value thanks to its unique functional principle.
Reliable under extreme conditions: LiView meets IP6K9K and is therefore ideally suited for demanding operating conditions such as dust, dirt or severe vibrations.
For high-resolution absolute measurement, LiView utilizes the cylinder itself as a very robust measuring distance. Thus the measuring distance is optimally protected against external influences. This ensures high availability.
How LiView works
The technical journal Fluid Power World published an article about LiView in its February issue. Read more about LiView's special features:
Install the LiView electronics directly on the cylinder or in your mobile machine. Only two small probes need a connection to the piston rod bearing - quickly and easily integrated.
The position transducer LiView is generally suitable for all cylinder lengths and piston diameters – a state-of-the-art sensor system with smart technology for all of your cylinders.
Accurate piston position and speed information are the basis for reliable automation. LiView enables precise control over cylinder movements. For instance, this allows assisted levelling, which relieves the driver and increases productivity.
Information about the accurate outrigger position plays a major role in avoiding tipping of the machine. LiView supplies precise position data for the implementation of safe load indicators, providing increased safety.
LiView allows for precise determination of the boom position. Thereby, the driver can define a workspace in which the boom is allowed to move freely. If the boom touches the defined workspace boundaries, the machine warns the driver or automatically stops the boom. This increases safety.
If a driver repeatedly stops at certain load and drop points, he can save these piston positions. Subsequently, the system supports the driver in approaching these points quickly and precisely. This semiautomatic positioning increases productivity.
