Mu-Track points to step change in sensing technology
Article about Sagentia's latest position sensing development, Mu-Track, which measures the position of the piston continuously over a large range of displacements and allows the cylinder control system to be programmed to change the end stop position of the piston in the cylinder without any manual intervention on the manufacturing line.
Position sensing technology plays an important role in today's highly automated industrial environment. It finds particular use in pneumatic cylinders which are key actuators in many processes, from car assembly lines, through consumer durables production to food processing plants. Without them, industry would, quite literally, grind to a halt.
