The LP-22 series of linear potentiometers from Sensor Alliance Group offer a solution to sensing requirements in the factory automation marketplace. The potentiometers are constructed to satisfy applications like robotic control, X-Y table feedback, injection molding machine slides, press or die arm position, control valve shaft position, and mil/aero test stands.
The ruggedly constructed 22 mm OD anodized aluminum housing with a 1m 3-conductor cable keeps out dust and permits a potentiometer to withstand high shocks (50 gs single hit) and vibration (20 gs). Swivel rod eye ends are standard to facilitate self-alignment during installation. Depending on range, the potentiometers are powered with a maximum input of between 12 and 36 Volts DC at 12 mA or less, and their maximum output resistance varies between 1 and 5 kilohms .
