Linear Position Sensing through Conductive Wall without Permanent Magnet†
AbstractA linear position sensor for pneumatic actuators is presented. Position of the piston rod made of ferromagnetic material is detected by low frequency magnetic field which penetrates the aluminum wall of the cylinder. The sensor consists of an array of integrated fluxgate sensors and two excitation saddle coils mounted outside the actuator. The method does not need a permanent magnet attached to the piston as required by common magnetic position sensors.
