New rugged draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has unveiled the MPM series of miniature rugged draw-wire sensors.

Suitable for harsh applications characterised by fast movements, short displacements and limited space, the sensors are installed in parallel with the on-vehicle shock absorbers, where they measure the absorber displacements caused by the road surface.

The displacement signal is then used to calculate vibration velocity and acceleration for the shock absorber. This measurement data provides developers with useful information about the properties of a chassis.

The devices are protected to IP65 and are able to withstand mechanical shocks up to 50g and wire acceleration up to 100g.

They have an aluminium housing and use a stainless steel draw wire. They can operate in ambient temperatures from -20 to 80°C.
