HGSI's LPPS-36 series Linear Potentiometer Travel Sensor with Rod End Joints are used to monitor and track the linear motion or position of a target. These ruggedized sensors are ideal for use in industrial and laboratory applications including automotive, industrial, motion control, medical, and aerospace.
Resistive potentiometric element is made from conductive plastic. Output is ratiometric; from 0% to 100% of excitation voltage.
The LPPS-36 series sensor is made from industrial duty materials for resistance to dust, temperature, shock, and vibration.
Rod End Joint thru-holes are 8 mm in diameter.
