Linear position sensors
POSITAL's LINARIX sensors are available in three measurement ranges: 1.25m, 2.4m and 7.5m.
POSITAL has extended its range of LINARIX linear position sensors with new low-cost versions. The new low-cost LINARIX sensors consist of a draw wire spool mechanism coupled to a rotary encoder (incremental or multi-turn absolute). As the wire is pulled out of the device, the rotation of the spool is tracked by the encoder. While the new plastic draw wire mechanisms are not as well suited to harsh environmental conditions as the metal-cased units, they offer lower costs, along with excellent accuracy, linearity and long, reliable service lives. The new low-cost LINARIX sensors are available in three measurement ranges: 1.25 m, 2.4 m and 7.5 m. These designs are compact and easy to position in complex machines.
