Non-linearity up to 0.05 % F.S.
Compact design, without rod
Displacement speed up to 10 m/s
Service life: >108 movements

Areas of application are:

Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders
Detection of positions on coordinate
inspection machines
Displacement of plungers, knee levers or extruders

Metering strokes
Displacement sensors model 8718, using a resistance track made of conductive plastic material, are suitable for direct, accurate and absolute measurements of displacements and lengths.

Special processes are applied to give the resistance tracks low friction, low tendency to stick/slip, resistance to abrasion and long-term stability.
