The Ognibene Optical Sensors “O-Sensor” series uses a non-contacting surface, sensing optical technology for the detection of a defined position in hydraulic actuators rod, not only for steering cylinders to detect the correct alignment of the machine axles, but also suitable to be integrated into different actuators where improved functions are requested.

The embedded intelligence and the last generation microcontroller, integrated with an optical device inside the sensor, detect a black ring marked with a special process on the cylinder’s rod surface.

Thanks to the intensive testing plan and the strict manufacturing process control, O-Sensor series represents a reliable and cost-effective turnkey solution already available in mass production.
