Long-Stroke Position Sensors feature contactless operation.

Press Release Summary:

Based on LVIT (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer) Technology™, LRL-27 Series provides 5 nominal ranges from 10–18 in. Units operate from variety of DC voltages and offer choice of 4 analog outputs. Contactless operation prevents wearout from dither or cycling. Supplied in 1.05 in. diameter anodized aluminum housing that is sealed to IP67, sensors are suited for factory automation systems, solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brakes, and robotic arm position feedback.

LRL-27 Series Long Stroke Heavy Duty LVIT Inductive Linear Position Sensors

Moorestown, New Jersey, – Alliance Sensors Group a div of H.G. Schaevitz LLC has expanded its sensor product offering by adding to its line the LRL-27 Series of long-stroke LVIT position sensors. These are contactless devices designed for factory automation systems and a variety of heavy duty industrial or commercial applications such as solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brakes, material chute or gate positioners on off-road or agri-vehicles, robotic arm position feedback, and packaging equipment. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the LRL-27 series offer a choice of four analog outputs, and all units include ASG's proprietary SenSet™ field scalability feature. With their compact yet robust design, superior performance, and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, LRL-27 sensors are ideal for industrial and OEM position sensing applications. 

LRL-27 Features:

• LVIT Technology™ (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer)

• Contactless operation prevents wearout from dither or cycling

• 5 Nominal ranges from 250 to 450 mm (10 to 18 inches)

• Excellent stroke-to-length ratio

• 27 mm (1.05 inch) diameter anodized aluminum housing sealed to IP-67

• Radial cable exit version comes with swivel rod eye ends

• Axial termination versions with either M-12 connector or 1-m cable

The LR series also includes the LR-27 for shorter stroke applications, LR-19 series for applications where a short length and smaller diameter body is required, and the spring loaded LRS-18 series. Technical data sheets and additional information can be found at www.alliancesensors.com.
