Alliance Sensors Group, a division of H.G. Schaevitz, LLC, has developed a linear position sensing technology called LVIT that offers an excellent price-to-performance ratio compared to other linear position sensing technologies such as LVDTs, linear potentiometers, and magnetostrictive devices. Furthermore, LVITs can offer the best stroke-to-length ratio of any contactless linear position sensor, because their overall length only increases by a relatively small percentage beyond their stroke.
Mechanical installation: An ASG ME-7 in-cylinder position sensors is embedded into a 48 mm diameter
cavity in the rear endcap of a hydraulic cylinder. It may be inserted from the front of an unassembled
cylinder or from the rear of a cylinder with a two-piece endcap with a separate end cover.
Mechanical installation: MR-7 in-cylinder position sensors are designed to be inserted into an o-ring port machined into the rear endcap of the hydraulic cylinder. Standard MR-7s use an SAE J1926-1 -8 port with a 3/4-16 UNF thread. Metric threaded versions use an ISO 1649-1 port with a M18 x 1.5 thread. Both ports are Illustrated below. For either size port, the sensor's male thread comes with a Viton o-ring installed.
SAE J1926-1 -8 Port
Alliance Sensors' LVIT Linear Position Sensors offer SenSet™ Field Programmability. SenSet™ allows the installer to very simply and quickly exactly match the full scale electrical output of a sensor to the actual mechanical movement range of the device in which the sensor is installed
