Non-contact sensors

TIM series of non-contact, rod-style linear position sensors integrate into hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. They mount easily in-cylinder through end cap and attach to the cylinder with threaded flange on rod or plug-in flange. Stroke lengths range from 50 to 2500 mm. They operate under pressure to 350 bar with peaks to 530 bar. Shock and vibration ratings are 100 and 25 G, respectively. Repeatability is ±0.01% FS, regardless of stroke length and resolution is 5 ∝m with 1 ∝m optional.
