  • High precision
  • Plug-in
  • Adaptive
  • Patented
Elynx patented
High precision Computer based
Elynx sensor
Registered patent Adaptive technology


We have been developing eLYNX technology for over 20 years, and today we are world leaders in the production and development of hydraulic cylinders equipped with integrated optical sensors. Thanks to the cooperation with Optoi, the skills in the electronic and mechanical fields have been combined to create an integrated mechatronic product with high levels of reliability and precision; Approximately 1 million systems have been sold worldwide since 2001.

The technology is based on the combination of intelligent electronics, an optical sensor with a patented adaptive algorithm, and a specific hydraulic cylinder designed to work in an integrated way with the sensor.

eLYNX is a plug-in technology, it allows the sensors to be used with any pressure level and application condition, does not require drilling of the rod, avoiding its weakening and uses sensors without needing for calibration, which can be easily installed and replaced.

The main characteristics resulting from it are:

  • Detection of a single or absolute position of the cylinder
  • Plug-in sensors
  • Integrable into any application
  • No pressure limits
  • No calibration required
  • Easily installable and replaceable
  • Responding to the requests of the main OEMs
  • Complete traceability
  • Resistant to harsh environments
  • Unaffected by external electromagnetic fields
  • fully integrated and highly tamper-proof
