Product description: Potentiometric Linear Transducer RC13

The RC13 series of compact displacement sensors are used in harsh environment applications requiring a robust linear transducer with long life, high accuracy and a guided push rod with measurement lengths from 25 to 250 mm.

The RC13 series of compact linear potentiometers is designed for applications in harsh environments. For mechanical coupling, the displacement sensors are available in three mounting styles: bracket, ball joint or flange. The ball joint version compensates for movement transverse to the pushrod, allowing non-linear movements to be coupled easily and without stress. The mechanical detection of linear movement is done by a front guided push rod.
Potentiometric displacement measurement is performed using a high-resolution conductive plastic resistive element. The 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.
Customization on the cable (length, connector finish) or on the pushrod (length, thread, flat...) is available on request.
