Heavy duty LVIT inductive linear position sensor for factory automation

Alliance Sensors Group, a division of H.G. Schaevitz LLC, has expanded its sensor product offering by adding to its line of 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 a compact, robust design, superior performance, and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, LR-27 sensors are suited for both industrial and OEM position sensing applications.

The sensors feature contactless operation that prevents wearout from dither or cycling and a 27mm diameter anodised aluminium housing sealed to IP-67.

Four versions from 50 to 200mm make up the LRL series, for ranges from 254 to 457mm. A radial cable exit version comes with swivel rod eye ends and axial termination versions come with either M-12 connector or 1m cable

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.
