ETH High Force Electrocylinder
ETH electrocylinders Unrivaled power density - high force and small frame sizes


The ETH electrocylinder closes the gap between pneumatic and hydraulic drives.  It is suitable to replace those in many applications and simultaneously increase the reliability of the production process. Taking the costs for air and oil into consideration, you will find that in most cases an electromechanical system such as the ETH electrocylinder offers the more economical solution.

  • Strokes up to 1600 mm  
  •  High traction/thrust force up to 25 100 N   
  •  Repeatability up to 0.03 mm    
  •  Speeds up to 1.7 m/s

SICK OD Series Displacement Sensors


Non-contact Gauging Technology

SICK's line of OD optical displacement sensors are reliable tools for optical gauging applications at extremely short ranges. They can measure distances as short as 24 mm with 0.02 micron resolution and have a fast response time of 1 ms. This makes non-contact OD optical displacement sensors an ideal alternate solution to mechanical measurement devices, such as LVDT probes.


OD Value Optical displacement sensorThe OD Value sensor captures the most minute differences in length, width, thickness, diameter, shape, position or eccentricity directly in the machine, without contact, with high accuracy and in-process.


OD Precision series handle the most varied applications regardless of whether rough or fine structured patterns are measured with a high degree of precision and resolution.
