Offering optimized position detection in hydraulic cylinders, the LTX magnetostrictive linear position sensors from Turck offers IP68 protection and is resistant to many chemicals and oils. Its rod is made of high-quality stainless steel, which offers optimal protection against aggressive process media. The wear-free sensors provide precise measurement signals with a high degree of linearity and repeatability. They come with either an analog output (4-20mA, 0-10V) or with a high resolution digital SSI output. A three color LED at the sensor’s shows the current device and signal status at anytime. The 1W input enables direct connection to display, control and interface modules. Easy to program, the sensors allow very quick adjustment of measurement range. Resistant to high levels of shock and vibration, the sensors can also be used in level detection with the help of optionally available float magnets.
