Position Sensors

Instant Feedback

Waukesha Magnetic Bearings position sensors provide instantaneous feedback of radial and axial rotor position to the electronic control system.

Our wide selection of field-proven sensor technologies uniquely positions us to address a broad range of application requirements.

Selection Considerations

Depending on system performance requirements, various position-sensing technologies are employed, including inductive, eddy current, capacitive and magnetic.

Typical selection considerations include:

  • Requirement of direct shaft sensing
  • Requirement for reduced conductor count
  • Required temperature range
  • Dynamic performance requirements
  • Use of canned or sealed bearing technology
