Material weakness detection for brake pedals

The flexural strength of the aluminum brake pedal is checked by means of two pneumatic clamping cylinders that apply pressure to two sides of the pedal. The MPS-T position sensor is used to detect the position of the two pistons for stroke measurement and thereby determine the deformation of the pedal.

  • Following product families can be used
    Position sensors for T-slot
    • Position sensor for direct mounting in T-slots on pneumatic cylinders
    • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 32 mm to 256 mm
    • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
    • Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters
