They can be programmed with a hand-programmer unit, a PC with USB connection, or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The Bluetooth option allows for programming in hard-to-reach places. Versions can measure maximum lengths between 25 mm and 3.25 m. The series offers high-resolution position sensing with up to &plusmn;0.02% full-scale linearity and &plusmn;0.005% FSO&nbsp;repeatability.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/position-sensors-eye-extreme-temperatures" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/position-sensors-eye-extreme-temperatures#comments Products Controls & Instrumentation Mon, 15 Jun 2015 19:04:00 +0000 33071 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Digital Panel Meters Accept Wide Range of Inputs http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/digital-panel-meters-accept-wide-range-inputs <div class="node-body article-body">Platinum digital panel meters feature 24-bit analog-to-digital converters that can measure 20 samples per second. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/digital-panel-meters-accept-wide-range-inputs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/other-components/digital-panel-meters-accept-wide-range-inputs#comments Products Other Components Thu, 11 Jun 2015 16:50:00 +0000 33041 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Reservoir Rust Inhibitor http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-accessories/reservoir-rust-inhibitor <div class="node-body article-body"><p>OilN<sub>2</sub> prevents the oxidation of oil in reservoirs by removing oxygen and moisture from the surrounding air.
