New range of linear position sensors from Variohm

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Variohm EuroSensor has released a new range of linear position sensors, which combine a sealed membrane potentiometer in a robust support housing to make installation straightforward for medium precision measurement from 50mm to 1m.

The low cost devices are available in nine standard position or displacement measurement ranges with independent linearity to +/-3% and average repeatability to +/-0.5mm. For higher precision use, a membrane potentiometer with independent linearity to 1% is also available.

Aimed at demanding linear measurement applications across all industries, the IPL series is particularly suited to door and gate closures, valves and vents, lifting and handling machinery, and other areas where low cost position verification is essential.

The simple design of the IPL can be manually driven with minimal force required, or provide position feedback in combination with electric, pneumatic or hydraulic automated actuators.

According to Variohm, the IP65 rated membrane potentiometer and the anodised aluminium frame and plastic wiper mechanism is capable of operation in harsh environments. The temperature range for the assembly is -40 to 85ÂșC with humidity rated at 95% RH.
