Position monitoring benefits actuators

Position monitoring benefits actuators Hoerbiger-Origa has developed SFI-Plus, a new contactless displacement measuring system for use with its electric and pneumatic linear actuators. Based on an incremental encoder, the SFI-plus can be used as a standalone monitor or, for more demanding applications, integrated with a PLC. The SFI-plus is available in two positional resolutions (1mm and 0.1mm) and has a travel velocity of up to 10m/s. It is fully encapsulated to IP76, has an operating temperature range of –25°C to +80°C, and is insensitive to shocks and vibrations, yet is compact in size so that it can be easily retrofitted to existing motion systems. The mounting kit supplied with the SFI-plus is so simple that it can be fitted in minutes using nothing more than a screwdriver.
