Analog Transducer measures linear position.

Press Release Summary:

Series JX-P420 offers 13 measurement ranges from 0-2 in. to 0-80 in. Designed for wet or dry environments, it features corrosion resistant thermoplastic body. Unit is actuated by extending stainless steel wire rope, which is maintained in constant tension by internal spring. Using potentiometer as sensing device, unit outputs loop powered 4-20 mA current. It includes adjustable zero and span control, integral wire rope dust wiper, and NEMA 4X ingress protection.

Original Press Release:

JX-P420 Series Low Cost NEMA 4X Loop Powered 4 to 20 mA Position Transducer

January 9, 2003, Corvallis, Oregon...To complement its existing line of analog and digital position transducers, UniMeasure announces the JX-P420 series analog output transducer for the
measurement of linear position. The JX-P420 series is a low cost, compact device for use in light to moderate duty position measurement applications in wet or dry environments. With a corrosion resistant thermoplastic body, the device is ideal for high volume OEM situations where cost is a major consideration and in applications where small size or low weight are of paramount importance. The 4 to 20 mA output facilitates use in electrically noisy environments.

The transducer is actuated by extending a stainless steel wire rope which is maintained in constant tension by an internal spring that also serves as the retraction mechanism. Using a potentiometer as the sensing device, the unit outputs a loop powered 4 to 20 mA current. Because of the wide adjustment range, the zero and span controls allow adjustment to give a full 4 to 20 mA output over just 50% of the overall travel range. The 4 to 20 mA transducer is easily interfaced to PLC's, digital meters and data acquisition units.

Important features of the JX-P420 linear position transducer include:
o 4 to 20 mA loop powered output
o Adjustable zero and span controls
o NEMA 4x (IP-65) ingress protection
o Integral wire rope dust wiper
o Lightweight, rugged corrosion resistant thermoplastic case
o Thirteen measurement ranges from 0 to 2" (50 mm) to 0 to 80" (2000 mm)
