Linear position sensors detect the displacement in respect of an absolute position by means of a Hall element, providing a proportional output voltage. They can be used for any movement, both linear and rotary (by means of a cam).
They are normally applied on suspended axles, articulated arms mechanisms, dump trailers or lifting systems, in order to detect position, stress or oscillations on agricultural vehicles and earth-moving or special processes machinery.
In particular, contactless sensors are suitable for the detection of shifting shafts (for example gear boxes).
5 Vdc or 9-30 Vdc power supply, contact or contactless versions available, customizable housing and connections.
Contactless position detection; Precision <0,1 mm on a maximum stroke of 20 mm; Suitable for the detection of movement and position of shifting shafts
