Alliance Sensors Group adds SS-7 Subsea sensors

Friday September 08, 2017
Sep. 8, 2017 - Alliance Sensors Group has announced the expansion of the ME, MR, MHP, and now the SS-7, series of linear position sensors used to measure the ram position of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders in industrial applications.

With no magnet required, ASG says the installation and cost of ownership is “dramatically reduced without sacrificing accuracy specifications.” The ME (embedded version), MR (port-mount version), MHP (port mount 25-mm hex housing) and SS-7 (Subsea port-mount) series fit into a gun-drilled cylinder the same way a magnetostrictive sensor would be installed but without the counterbore necessary for the magnet. ME/MR/MHP sensors use a coil design and are based on a contactless inductive sensing technology that employs a solid probe construction style which requires a conductive tubular target or a small diameter deep hole gun drilled in the cylinder rod for operation. According to ASG, the ME/MR/MHP/SS-7 series can withstand intense shocks and vibration, and operating temperatures up to 85 degrees C for standard products and 125 degrees C for custom units.
