Product description: Potentiometric linear transducer MBX

The potentiometric displacement sensor series MBX is excellently suited for very limited installation space due to its extremely flat design with an overall height of only 7 mm. In addition, the universal cursor can be coupled mechanically in a flexible manner, so that no push rod is required, thus saving space in the customer's housing. With its open design, the displacement encoder is designed for installation in a customer housing.  
The sensors are linear displacement transducers based on conductive plastic technology. The potentiometric measuring principle makes the displacement sensors insensitive to X-rays and EMC influences. Please note that a potentiometric sensor with conductive plastic technology is not integrated into the application as a "resistor". Basically the voltage divider circuit should be used, we recommend "overhead mounting".
