Off-highway equipment has seen a significant increase in the need for electrohydraulic automation in mobile equipment, which, in turn, requires reliable electronic feedback of cylinder position. The most popular means of meeting this need is with an in-cylinder linear displacement transducer (LDT). And although magnetostrictive technology may not have been an obvious choice for off-highway applications in the past, advances in design and technology have brought these sensors in line with the needs of off-highway equipment. More importantly, unlike other available technologies, magnetostriction provides unmatched benefits to drive the future evolution of closed-loop control systems in off-highway equipment.
