Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

Displacement Transducers have virtually frictionless movement.

Useful for measuring displacement of soft, pliable materials, AML/SGD Series strain gauge displacement transducers offer stroke lengths from 0-5 to 0-100 mm. Internal construction ensures smooth, frictionless movement of inner core, resulting in minimal resistance and providing accuracy of ±0.1%. Design is based on 4-arm active Wheatstone Bridge, with nominal impedance of 350 ohms, which...
