Easy, non-contact measurement of piston position

For over 20 years, Rexroth's Cylinder Integrated Measuring System (CIMS) has been measuring the piston rod position in thousands of hydraulic cylinders, reliably and with precision, all over the world. The latest generation has been developed in close cooperation with Bosch's automotive experts. Cutting-edge technology from the automotive sector has been further refined for this purpose and optimized for extremely harsh industrial environments. The result: a non-contact, high-precision measuring system that is easy to install and easy to put into operation. This system automatically compensates for external influences and its status can be easily monitored at any time.

 

MK IV Cylinder Measurement System


Key technical data:

  • High accuracy: non-linearity < ±1 mm
  • RS-422 output signal (1,024 pulses/com)
  • Wide temperature range from – 40-70 °C
  • High pressure resistance (IP68, 10 bar)
  • Certified for potentially explosive environments (ATEX Zone 1)
 

Advantages & Product Features:

  • Contactless operation, no contact between sensor and cylinder rod: no-wear parts; no-slide pad; and no-rod diameter, depending on components and a completely closed housing.
  • Easy commissioning/easy installation: plug & play and no (manual) calibration necessary; CIMS will automatically compensate for mounting tolerances, magnetic disturbances and temperature effects.
  • Status CIMS can be monitored. Simplifi ed failure analysis possible: diagnostic output, through a PC or PLC, can be retrieved for sensor status, error codes & sensor identification.
  • Increased operating conditions: CIMS withstands tougher environmental conditions, larger temperature range (up to -40 °C), higher speeds.
