Precalibrated Position Sensor Serves as Potentiometer Replacement
Macro Sensors introduced its LP750 series position sensors that are hermetically sealed, frictionless, and they can serve as long-life replacements for failing potentiometers in a range of industrial position measurement applications such as machine tool positioning, hydraulic cylinder positioning, valve position sensing and automatic assembly equipment. Offering frictionless position feedback similar to the potentiometer, these sensors have no parts that wear out, offering unlimited cycle life and greater performance than a potentiometer. A proprietary oil winding configuration and digitally enhanced analog output enable a compact design, making them suitable for use in applications with limited installation space. Constructed entirely of stainless steel, these sensors are sealed against hostile environments to IEC standard IP-68.
