Novotechnik U.S. introduced its LS1 Series, a line non-contact linear position sensors based on the company’s a non-contacting inductive technology and are insensitive to magnetic fields and have no mechanical sensor track. Programming the sensor’s end points is achieved using a signal processor integrated into the sensor and two LED programming status indicators. The LS1 Series include 25 to 100 mm measurement range for the return spring version and 25 to 200 mm for rod only version. Resolution is to 0.05 percent and repeatability to less than 0.05 percent. Four output options are available: 0.1 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA, 10 to 0.1 V and 20 to 4 mA. Sensor life is >100 million movements.
