LPPS-36B Linear Potentiometer Position Sensor with Rod End Joints


• Ruggedized Linear Potentiometer
• Measure the linear motion or position of target
• Stroke lengths available from 350 to 700 mm (14 to 28 inches)
• Rod End Joints for simple mounting
• Anodized aluminum corrosion resistant housing
• Environmental rating of IP61 (Dust tight, Water resistant)
• 1.4" (36 mm) OD housing

HGSI's LPPS-36B 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-36B 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.
