Cylinder sensor PS6300 is the third generation in-cylinder position sensor for compact installation in cylinder applications. It is the market’s most advanced potentiometer sensor and has been developed to cope with the increasingly harsh demands on performance, accuracy and economy. Almost 40 years of experience in the manufacture of industrial and military potentiometers guarantee a high quality and reliability. The PS6300 Series is available in 20 standard strokes and provides excellent long life.
The PS6300 has sensor elements of conductive plastic, which gives advantages such as very long life and good linearity values. It has been on the market for many years in interesting and demanding applications such as industry, agriculture and forestry and marine environment. With an absolute analogue output, it is easy to connect to different types of measuring or control systems and does not need to be reset when switching on or starting the machine.
With flexible mounting possibilities in cylinders, with or without link ears, a compact and mechanically well protected sensor unit is obtained. It also provides a simplified machine design and minimizes maintenance costs. In addition, the sensor becomes insensitive to external environmental impact, such as impacts, shocks and dirt etc..
