Siko’s New Encoders

With the new wire-actuated encoders SGH25 and SGH50, Siko has expanded the measuring spectrum of the SGH series, which can now measure lengths ranging from zero to five meters. The encoders will be on display at the Bauma trade show in Munich in April.

This is made possible by an innovative, cable-based functional and design concept that fully integrates sensors, electronics, and mechanics into the cylinder. This compact design is now also suitable for large cylinder strokes found in hydraulic and telescopic cylinders of construction machinery, agricultural machinery or commercial vehicles. The sensors fulfill a central requirement, according to which the cylinder length should ideally not increase when a sensor is installed.

While the SGH10 wire-actuated encoder covers ranges between zero and one meter, the SGH25 and SGH50 now also advance into larger ranges. With measurement lengths between zero and 2.5 meters, the SGH25 is suitable for medium stroke paths, while the SGH50, with stroke lengths between zero and five metres, is suitable for applications with relatively wide measurement ranges.
