Product description: Potentiometric linear transducer MBX

The potentiometric displacement sensor MBX series is ideal for applications where space is at a premium due to its extremely flat design with an overall height of only 7 mm. In addition, the universal cursor can be mechanically coupled in a flexible manner, eliminating the need for a push rod and saving space in the customer's application. With its open design, the encoder is intended 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 intended to be integrated into the application as a "resistor". In principle, the voltage divider circuit should be used. Overhead mounting is also recommended.
