SL180-501 Linear Position Sensor for Harsh Environments – 84″ (2 Meters)
A unique linear to rotary to linear coupling allows our sealed LVDT based position sensor to outperform all sensor technologies in harsh or extreme duty environments.
The SL180-501 is an excellent example of linear position sensing in an application where it was not previously possible. Large valves used in cooking ovens need to be reliably controlled, where components are subject to extreme environmental conditions, where string pots would not survive. In this case, the sensor is not mounted in a cylinder, but is externally mounted and provides position feedback over 84″ of linear travel.
