These new four position sensors from Gefran use the Hyperwave magnetostrictive length measuring principle. They suit larger measurement and temperature ranges and permit users to choose between an analog and synchronous serial interface (SSI). The Hyperwave magnetostrictive length measuring principle distinguish itself through its signal strength that is up to twenty times higher.

Three designs protected to IP67

These position transducers suit demanding industrial applications. They include the WP and WR ranges with three designs each: general (G), plus (P) and advanced (A). In addition, they are certified to cULus, protected to IP 67 and are available with Profinet on request. The WP ranges is compatible with MK4 sensors, as well as with IK4 sensors, which are ideal for use with hydraulic cylinders.
