• Spring Loaded Linear Potentiometer
• Stroke lengths available from 5 to 100 mm (0.2 to to 4 inches)
• Environmental rating of IP61 (Dust tight, Water resistant)
• Compact Size, housing is only 16 mm diameter
LPPS-MSL series Spring Loaded Linear Potentiometer Travel Sensors are used to monitor and track the linear motion or position of a target. The captive and guided spring loaded shaft incorporates an external helical compression spring to maintain constant contact with the part under measurement. These compact sized sensors are only 16mm OD making them ideal for installations with limited space. LPPS-MSL series sensors are used in a vast array of gauging applications including laboratory, 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-MSL series sensor is made from industrial duty materials for resistance to dust, temperature, shock, and vibration.
