Linear position sensors

Linear Sensors

Linear position sensors for mounting in parallel with a linear motion.

Linear sensor are usually mounted in one of the following ways:

  • Rod based sensor. The sensor housing is fixed and the sensor rod is attached to the linear motion.
  • Sensor with shuttle. he sensor housing is fixed and the the linear motion is attached to a shuttle on the sensor housing. This solution can be totally sealed by a linear magnetostrictive sensor.
  • Sensor with ball joints. The sensor suspended in ball joints parallel to the linear motion.

Complete the solution with cables.

If the measurement is made in parallel with a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder, a cylinder sensor can be an excellent alternative.
