TWIIST: the multi-variable position sensor by Gefran

TWIIST: the multi-variable position sensor by Gefran

News 04.03.2023

TWIIST has a particularly compact steel case that, in a diameter of just 16 mm, encloses the technological heart of the sensor, a patented system for measuring position based on the 3–dimensional Hall Effect. TWIIST is capable of simultaneously measuring position, linear acceleration, angular velocity, and sensor temperature. It also implements virtual speed and inclination sensors based on a summary of position and acceleration measurements. Thanks to its water resistance and shock and vibration absorption, TWIIST is the ideal solution for measuring position in various industrial sectors and in mobile hydraulics.

TWIIST is the perfect example of a smart sensor: thanks to its powerful integrated CPU it is in fact able to analyse and correlate the data collected in order to ensure monitoring and analysing the processes and machines to which it is applied. TWIIST supports the development of application-specific proprietary algorithms.

Thanks to IO-Link (LM-L model) and CANopen (LM-C model) digital outputs, measurements relating to process variables, such as position and speed or angle of inclination, are transmitted digitally for up to 1,000 times per second. At the same time, the sensor is capable of processing and making available acyclic information such as vibration peaks, maximum temperature reached, hours of work, and number of km travelled by the cursor, useful for analysing and further understanding the machine’s behaviour. It is possible to calculate and transmit additional acyclic variables depending on the proprietary algorithms implemented.
