According to Unimeasure (Corvallis, OR), the FX-HM series linear position transducer provides up to 15” (381mm) of measurement range in a subcompact plastic package. With a two point mounting system and a diameter of 1.5 inches, it is ideal for use in areas where space is a premium. The device employs a non-contacting hall effect internal sensor which permits use in applications where a very high cycle life is required. Specifically:
- With an excitation voltage requirement anywhere in the range of 4.9 to 30 volts and a very low current requirement, the unit may easily be battery powered or operated from most standard instrumentation power supplies.
- The analog voltage output of nominally 0 to 10 VDC may be easily interfaced to most popular data acquisition, PLC and display devices.
- The FX-HM with a dynamic response capability up to 25 Hz over a 1.5” range makes it acceptable for use in measurement applications for suspension travel, throttle position, machine mechanism monitoring and many other applications where space restrictions exist.
