Real-Time Position Sensors Boast Of An Extended Life

A new low-resistance compound added to the LWH series of real-time position sensors has extended the product’s lifetime to more than 100 million cycles. The sensors are said to be well suited for control loops and other applications requiring position information with no update time delays or dead zones. And since there is no minimum velocity requirement, position information can be read during machine startups and stops. Designed to achieve a repeatablility of 0.01 mm and linearity to ±0.04%, LWH transducers give accurate, real-time position information without time delays. The series operates at speeds up to 10 m/s and comes in stroke lengths of 75 to 900 mm. The sensors also have a unique snap-on mounting feature to simplify installation.
