Draw-wire linear sensors

Paul Boughton

DLS is a compact sensor that provides accurate measurement in a range of strokes up to 5000mm and is ideal for use where space is a constraint or where traditional linear position sensors are not suitable.

In extending its product range Penny + Giles is offering more choice to OEMs in a number of industries including construction, agriculture, materials handling, aerospace and automotive.

There are three models in the range and all are encased in a high strength aluminium housing and sealed to IP65 for use in harsh environments. They provide virtually infinite resolution with a long life cycle and can withstand temperatures from -20 to 80ºC.

The sensors can be supplied with a choice of analogue outputs (potentiometer, 0–10Vdc voltage or two-wire 4–20mA current) or digital outputs provided by encoders.

The sensor can be orientated in any direction and has mounting grooves on four sides of the housing to make the sensors easy to install. A range of accessories is also available to assist the user during installation. All products are supplied from Penny + Giles's ISO9001 certified facility and carry the CE mark.
