Potentiometric Linear Transducer Series RC13

Potentiometric linear transducer in a compact design with various mounting versions

In the displacement sensor series RC13 the mechanical detection of linear movement is done by a front guided push rod with accurate sleeve bearings. For mechanical coupling the RC13 series provides three mounting versions: flange, mounting brackets or ball joints. Due to his compact design with only 13 mm diameter in the profile and the different mounting possibilities a space saving and easy integration can be reached up to 250 mm measurement stroke. To ensure high accuracy and long lifetime for a good price performance ratio the potentiometric measuring principle is realized with a high-resolution conductive plastic resistance element. Since the potentiometric measuring principle delivers absolute values and requires no electronic conversion, the position feedback signal is true power on without delay, temperature stable and robust against EMC influences. Customization on the cable in length or finishing with plug connector is available on request.
