Linear Actuation Sensor Promises A Spring Return

product pic

Targeted at industrial, robotic, automotive and heavy equipment applications, the Model 404 Series is a linear actuation sensor with a spring return mechanism that enables the device to operate reliably in industrial automation processes. The design of the sensor eliminates the need for additional components required for direct coupling in industrial applications, so it is well suited for situations where space is limited.
The compact 404 Series sensor accurately measures linear motion and achieves independent linearity of ±1%. The device has an active electrical travel of 0.5" and an overall mechanical length of only 1.87" when the plunger is fully extended. Standard resistance range for the device is from 1 ohm to 150 Kiloohms with tolerances of ±10% and TCR of -800 ppm/°C. Power rating is 0.25W at 70°C. Life expectancy is five million actuations.
