Inductive Sensor Measure Ram Position of Hydraulic & Pneumatic Cylinders

Description

ME Series of Linear Position Sensors is designed to be drop-in form, fit, and function replacements for embedded magnetostrictive sensors but with much more robust construction and a lower cost of ownership.

They can also replace embedded resistance potentiometers, offering high accuracy without wearout. ME Series sensors are based on a patented contactless inductive sensing technology that uses solid probe construction and requires only a simple conductive tubular target or a small diameter deep hole gun drilled in the cylinder rod for operation rather than needing a permanent magnet ring, counter-bored hole, or any other type of special target.

Specs

  • uses solid probe construction and requires only a simple conductive tubular target or a small diameter deep hole gun drilled in the cylinder rod for operation
  • Operating temperatures up to 85 C for standard products and 125 C for custom units
  • Head of an ME series sensor fits into the same 48 mm diameter cavity
  • Available in full ranges from 2 to 36 inches
  • Sensor probes are offered in diameters of 7 mm (ME-7) for industrial use and 11 mm (ME-11) for heavier duty or larger cylinder use
  • Standard Features: lead wires, a 4-conductor cable, or a field-assembled 2-piece M-12 connector
