Germanjet 17 Series with Crystal Hydraulic Cylinder

Hydraulic cylinder is common for use in machinery, mobile vehicle, and heavy industry. Those hydraulic cylinders have no position feedback and only can move from one set point to the other. Due to technological advancement, hydraulic cylinder with precise, direct and absolute position feedback is desired. To make a traditional cylinder with intelligence, Germanjet designed a non-contact absolute position transducer for cylindrical application - 17 series.

The installation of Germanjet 17 series sensor into any cylinder is extremely simple. The crystal hydraulic cylinder shows a full pictorial coverage of the procedures. It also demonstrates the perfect integration of the Germanjet sensor to any cylinder.

Success Stories

Magnetostrictive Technology

The fundamental principle of the Germanjet position transducer is by analyzing the feedback sonic wave induced by an interaction of two magnetic fields. The first magnetic field is produced by the moveable magnetic cursor which attached at the moving component of a machine. The second field is generated by the pulse initiator. Learn more...
