Harold G. Schaevitz Industries has expanded its sensor product offering by adding resistive technology to its portfolio of linear position sensors.
The LPPS-22 series of linear potentiometers offer a cost-effective solution to sensing requirements in the factory automation marketplace. LPPS-22 series potentiometers are expertly constructed for applications like automotive, robotic control, X-Y table feedback, injection molding machine slides, press or die arm position, control valve shaft position, and mil/aero test stands.
Features of the LPPS-22 include full ranges from 1 to 12 inches (25 to 300 mm); self-aligning swivel rod eyes on both ends; environmentally sealed to IEC IP-61; an operating temperature range of -40°C to 95°C (-40°F to 203°F); and linearity better than 0.10%.
The ruggedly constructed 22 mm OD anodized aluminum housing with a 1-meter (3-foot) three-conductor cable keeps out dust and permits an LPPS-22 shock absorber suspension travel potentiometer to withstand high shocks (50 gs single hit) and vibration (20 gs). Swivel rod eye ends are standard to facilitate self-alignment during installation. Depending on range, LPPS-22 series potentiometers are powered with a maximum input of between 12 and 36 Volts DC at 12 mA or less, and their maximum output resistance varies between 1 and 5 kilohms.
