Compact Position Sensors feature pressure equalization.

Press Release Summary:

Offered in 18 mm dia housing with stroke lengths up to 300 mm, TEX series uses differential pressure compensation technology to equalize pressure that builds up from rod movement on linear sensors. IP66-rated series withstands adverse environmental conditions such as humidity, oil, and dust while exhibiting ±0.05% linearity and better than 0.01 mm resolution. Pivot heads eliminate side-load errors, and series has operating life rated for up to 20 million movements.
