Linear position sensor is based on sealed membrane potentiometer

Variohm EuroSensor is releasing new IPL series linear sensors, a low-cost range of linear position sensors that feature a sealed membrane potentiometer in a robust support housing to make installation straightforward for medium-precision measurement from 50mm to 1m.

The IPL series linear sensors are available in nine standard position or displacement measurement ranges with independent linearity to +/-3 per cent and average repeatability to +/-0.5mm. For higher precision, a membrane potentiometer with independent linearity to 1 per cent is available on request.

Aimed at demanding linear measurement applications across all industries, they are well matched to door and gate closures, valves and vents, lifting and handling machinery, and other areas where low-cost position verification is required. The simple design of the IPL can be manually driven with minimal force required, or position feedback can be provided in combination with electric, pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.

The field-proven IP65 membrane potentiometer and the durable anodised aluminium frame and plastic wiper mechanism is capable of operation in harsh environments. The temperature range for the assembly is -40 to +85degC with humidity at 95 per cent RH.

Flexibility built into the range includes standard Crimpflex solder-tab electrical terminations and further connector options on request. Thanks to Variohm's own in-house design and manufacturing capability, the IPL linear position sensor can be supplied with customised measurement lengths and mechanical interfaces for OEM customers.

Follow the link to find out more about the IPL series linear position sensors and other position sensors from Variohm EuroSensor.
