The new Procompact micropulse transducer from Balluff is suitable for applications including hydro-electric systems, offshore equipment, rail vehicles and outdoor hydraulic valves and drives.

The new cylinder feedback system for extreme environments features a rugged, fully welded stainless steel housing with a stainless thread fitting that makes it easy to adapt a cable protection system.

With a protection rating of IP 67 or IP 69K, the transducer is suitable for use when the piston position in hydraulic cylinders needs to be precisely detected, even under harsh conditions.

Measures such as a separate housing, a protective covering or special threaded fittings and cabling are eliminated.

The Procompact is ready to use without any special adaptations.

The company said that the transducer, which offers high precision and reliability, is often applied in safety-relevant areas such as re-tensioning devices with overhead power lines or hydraulically driven large valves.

With an adapted cable protection system, the complete transducer system is even pressure rated to 40 bar for underwater use, with the rod rated at 600 bar to withstand cylinder pressures.

Micropulse transducers from Balluff are wear and maintenance free, ensuring a long service life without non-productive and expensive downtimes.
