Product description: Potentiometric Linear Transducer MM10

The MM10 without spring return / MMR10 with spring return series is used in applications where space is at a premium and a miniaturised displacement sensor with long life, high accuracy and a double guided push rod is required.

The MM10 / MMR10 series of linear potentiometers have a very compact design, making them ideal for applications where space is at a premium. The potentiometric displacement measurement is performed using a high-resolution conductive plastic resistive element. Thanks to this comolded conductive plastic technology and the high quality sleeve bearings, the compact displacement encoder has a very long life and high accuracy due to its good linearity. As the potentiometric measuring principle provides absolute values and requires no electronic conversion, the position feedback signal is true power on without delay, temperature stable and robust against EMC influences.
In the MM(R)10 series of displacement sensors, the mechanical detection of linear motion is achieved by means of a front and rear guided push rod. The displacement sensor can be used as a probe or with a guided push rod. The internal or external spring return enables additional applications. The MM(R)10-15 linear potentiometer with solder pins is designed for direct integration on printed circuit boards. Customization of the cable (length, connector version) or of the plunger (length, thread, flat...) is available on request.
