Variohm EuroSensor has developed an innovative, sealed rod-type linear position sensors, named Novotechnik LWX series that is suitable for exigent milieus. These sensors include the LWG rod-actuated potentiometric plan along with extra sealing up to IP67 protection rating and use a pressure equalization process to prohibit building up of pressure.
The LMX series is accessible in a variety of electrical stroke lengths (750mm) and tenders absolute measurement with a 0.01mm resolution and 0.04% linearity. It is to be used in agricultural machinery, construction equipment, and severe industrial automation surroundings where highly dependable linear position measurements are required. The out and out metallic devise includes a robust anodized aluminum framework along with an actuator rod made of stainless steel. This rod is buttressed by twin bearings with a pivot head which has zero backlash and fixed on rod and body ends that permit a whooping number of 50 million open movements up to ±12.5 degrees. This unit is applicable for harsh environments such as contaminants including water; oil and high pressure wash down.
The LMX’s inimitable conductive plastic resistance element process includes an amalgam of multi-fingered metal wipers with special multiple printed ink technologies damped by an elastomer which sustains a steadfast contact even in the most challenging and grueling, shock and vibration settings. Its environmental stipulations incorporate a 50g for 11ms shock rating and a vibration rating from 5 to 2000Hz to 20 g.
