Microprecision introduced a family of “swiss made” sensors for position detection. The new MP600 series of mechanical sensors very accurately detects two positions within a single, compact electromechanical component. Two independent commutations can sense two previously defined positions to within a few microns of accuracy.
The distance between the two positions can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis.
Repeatability is less than 5 µm and, depending on cable selection, the operational temperature ranges from -40°C up to 130°C. Pre-cabled and sealed to IP67, the MP600 can be supplied with a connector termination, typically M8 or M12.
