Position control of the hydrodynamic coupling
An inductive EDS displacement sensor is used for stroke measurement of hydraulic cylinders in diesel-hydraulic drives. The inductive long-stroke sensor monitors the unintended traction of the locomotive and is thus a safety-relevant component in the drive system. Only when the transmission is fully disengaged can persons such as shunters work near the locomotive. The transmission of the locomotive is moved by a hydraulic cylinder. The inductive sensor monitors the piston stroke and thus determines the clutch condition. induSENSOR EDS models are insensitive to oil and pressure and can be integrated directly into the hydraulic cylinder.
