Celesco Transducer Products has released what many feel may be one of the most innovative stringpots of its kind in the industry, one that offers measurement ranges to 50 inches.
Available for immediately delivery and in stock, Celesco's SP3 sensor is receiving rave reviews. This compact, low-cost stringpot provides a user selectable 4-20 mA or 0-10 Vdc output signal and takes just 12-32 Vdc to operate. This sensor can be easily installed using the handy mounting bracket and desired output signal selected by simply connecting the appropriate signal wires.
Constructed with a rugged, water resistant polycarbonate body, the SP3 has been designed for tight spaces, generous measuring cable misalignment and free release tolerance.
In all the SP3 offers four different ranges and thus can function as an ideal solution for many applications from light industrial to large, global OEMs. These stroke ranges include 0-4.75, 0-12.5, 0-25 and 0-50 inches.
