The MHP series linear inductive sensors are designed for installation into the rear end-cap of hydraulic cylinders for operation at pressures up to 5,000 psig. Their 1-inch hex aluminum or stainless steel housing are suitable for mobile hydraulics, factory automation machinery, or oil and gas exploration equipment, and mount to the cylinder with a standard male o-ring port thread. The sensors are based on a proprietary contactless inductive-sensing technology with a short stroke-to-length ratio. They employ a 7-mm diameter probe inserted into an 8-mm (5/16 inch) gun-drilled hole in the cylinder rod to measure position rather than a ring magnet or pot contact spool. They are offered in ranges from 50 to 600 mm (2 to 24 inches) full scale.
