Product description: Magnetostrictive Linear Transducer OMS

The OMS linear sensor series are used in harsh environments who requiring a robust, contactless and flat sensor with a very long lifespan in 50 to 1500 mm.

The OMS series (with Printed Coil Technology) detects the mechanical linear movements with a guided or a free cursor. The position evaluation of the magnetic cursor is transformed contactless into a linear analogue signal. The magnetostrictive measurement principle is true power on. The free cursor tolerates mechanical offset up to ±2 mm in vertically and horizontally position. The cursor with ball joints compensates vertical and horizontal offset. This permits applications with critical shock or vibration influences. Due to the absence of the push rod and with the flat design, the displacement sensor can be integrated in a space-saving manner for applications that need a robust construction in IP65 and measurement from 50 to 1500 mm. The measuring principle is contactless and thus enables a very long lifespan of the sensor. The displacement sensor is mounted overhead with clamps.
