Description

The linear transducer model PWA measures the absolute position of the plunger without contact or wear using an inductive resonator measuring system. This consists of an excitation coil which causes an oscillating resonance circuit (moving target) fastened to the plunger to oscillate. This in turn excites the receiver coils fixed in the housing, which are printed on a printed circuit board. The integrated electronics transform these signals (sin/cos) into a signal proportionate to the linear travel. The measuring system is insensitive to electrical and magnetic fields. 0(4) to 20 mA and 0 to 10 VDC are available as standard as analogue signal outputs. CANopen, IO link and SSI are in preparation. The sensor is fastened using at least two retaining clips HK-01 or using sliding blocks ST-01. The sensor can be equipped with ball joints at the front and rear. Alternatively, the sensor's plunger can be designed as a button.
