Linear Position Sensor Requires No Magnet


MR Series of Linear Position Sensors is suitable for measuring the ram position of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Units are designed to be a drop-in form, fit, and function replacement for magnetostrictive sensors, but with much more robust construction.


They specifically target port-mounted applications of industrial, mobile, or subsea hydraulic cylinders and large pneumatic actuators. MR Series sensors are based on a unique contactless inductive sensing technology that employs a solid probe construction style  requiring 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 or some other type of special target.


Features of the MR series linear position sensor include:


•   Measurement ranges from 1 to 24 in. (100 to 600 mm)

•   Operates to 5,000 psi or 10,000 feet (3,000 m) depth

•   IEC IP-67 aluminum or stainless steel housing

•   Contactless; no wear-out

•   85°C operation (105°C option)

•   DC voltage or current analog output

•   SenSet Field Adjustable Scaling
