Alliance MR inductive sensor Series designed for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder position feedback.
Alliance Sensors Group released its MR Series of linear position sensors designed as a drop-in replacement for magnetostrictive sensors—specifically for port-mounted industrial, mobile, or subsea hydraulic cylinders and large pneumatic actuators. MR Series sensors are based on a contactless inductive sensing technology. The sensor series measurement ranges from 2 to 36 inches (50 to 900 mm); operates to 5000 psi; has a linearity error of less than or equal to ±0.1% of full scale output, and has a -3dB frequency response of 500 Hz. The sensor features an IEC IP-67 aluminum or stainless steel housing and operates in temperatures up to 85C and 105C for custom units.
