TURCK has announced the EZ-Track line of programmable, auto-tuning, non-contact linear displacement transducers (LDTs). These sensors offer an alternative to proximity switches where continuous linear feedback is necessary.
Utilising magnetostrictive technology, the LDTs monitor the position of a magnet along the sensors active stroke without causing any wear on the sensor parts. An accuracy of 0.1 per cent and a repeatability of 0.01 per cent of the full stroke can be achieved.
EZ-Track sensors are 10 to 30V dc units and are offered in stroke lengths from 4" to 180" in increments of 0.1". The anodised aluminium housing is sealed to an IP67 rating.
Outputs available are 0 to 10V, 10 to 0V, -10 to 10V, 10 to -10V, 4 to 20mA, 20 to 4mA. Turck provides the complete package with accessories such as cordsets, floating magnets, slide magnets, mounting brackets and test box controllers. Sensit 03 9807 7711.
