Bestech Australia introduces the ME Series linear position sensors for embedded use in measuring the ram position of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders in industrial, mobile, or subsea applications.
The ME Series linear position sensors are based on a patented contactless inductive sensing technology that uses solid probe construction and requires only a simple conductive tubular target or a small diameter deep hole gun drilled in the cylinder rod for operation rather than a permanent magnet ring, counterbored hole, or any other type of special target.
Designed to be drop-in form, fit, and function replacements for embedded magnetostrictive sensors, the new ME Series offers a much more robust construction and a lower cost of ownership. They can also replace embedded resistance potentiometers, offering high accuracy without wear out.
Key features of the ME Series linear position sensors include: No requirement for a magnet; measurement ranges from 4 to 36 inches (100 to 900 mm); operates to 5000 psi or 10,000 feet (3000m) depth; IEC IP-67 aluminium or stainless steel housing; contactless technology eliminates wear out; 85°C operation (105°C option); DC voltage or current analogue output; and SenSet Field Adjustable Scaling.
