Optimum performance for industrial applications - this is what the Temposonics R-Series offers. The modell RF with flexible sensor rod offers measuring ranges up to 20 m and eases installation.
A rod-shaped, flexible sensor housing protects the sensing element in
which gives rise to the measurement signal. The sensor head accommodates the complete modular electronic interface with active signal conditioning. Double encapsulation ensures high operating safety and optimum EMC protection. The position transmitter, a permanent magnet - fixed at the mobile machine part - drives contactlessly over the sensor's stroke and starts measuring through the housing wall. The RF sensors are housed in a teflon coated stainless steel housing that is flexible and that can be bent in an arc to an 250 mm min. bend radius arc. Specifications are measured with flexible sensor element at a 0° degree bend radius. Most operating parameters are identical to its rigid cousin.
