Heavy duty inductive linear position sensor for factory automation

Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its sensor product offering with the LR-27 Series Inductive Linear Position Sensors. These are contactless devices designed for factory automation and a variety of heavy duty industrial or commercial applications such as solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brakes, chute or gate positioners on off-road or agri-vehicles, robotic arm position feedback, and packaging equipment.

With their compact, robust design, performance, and stroke-to-length ratio, LR-27 sensors are suited for both industrial and OEM position sensing applications

LR-27 series sensors are currently offered in five full scale ranges from 50 to 200mm, with a 27mm diameter anodised aluminium housing sealed to IP-67. They also feature contactless operation, which is said to prevent wearout from dither or cycling and are available with axial cable or connector terminations, or with a radial exiting cable and two swivel rod eye ends for easy installation.

Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the LR-27 series offer a choice of four analogue outputs, and all units include ASG's SenSet field scalability feature.

The LR series also includes the LR-19 series for applications where a shorter length and smaller diameter body is required and the spring loaded LRS-18 for applications where the probe cannot be hard fixed to the measurand.
