Programmable linearposition sensors

The LS1 Series of noncontact linear position sensors. are insensitive to magnetic fields and have no mechanical sensor track. Models are available with and without a return spring.

The unit features programmable end-points that are set using pushbuttons on top of the sensor. Programming is through a signal processor and two LED programming status indicators. An output range can be programmed either the same as, or independent of, actual travel length by setting minimum and maximum output levels. Current or voltage output levels can be programmed separately from position programming.

Key specifications include a 25 to 100-mm measurement range for the return spring version and 25 to 200 mm for rod-only version. Resolution is to 0.05 % and repeatability to less than 0.05%. Four output options are available: 0.1 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA, 10 to 0.1 V, and 20 to 4 mA. Sensor life is >100 million movements.
