Analog Linear Sensors

Oct. 26, 2006
The new R-Series analog sensor can produce outputs for two independent magnet marker positions simultaneously.

It can also measure a single magnet marker position and velocity. The speed range is 25 mm/sec to 10 m/sec with speed-sensing resolution reduced to 0.1 mm/sec. These analog sensors can be factory or field configured and come with three options for field programming: handheld, DIN-rail mounted, and PC based. They include a reduced electronic housing length that is independent of measurement stroke, a 100-g survivability rating for shock, and 15-g continuous operation rating for vibration. Further protection comes from double EMI shielding for EMC immunity and enhanced security protection, including polarity to 30 Vdc and overvoltage to 36 Vdc.
