Moorestown, NJ --- H. G. Schaevitz LLC Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its sensor product offering by adding resistive technology to its portfolio of linear position products. The LP-22 series of linear potentiometers offer a cost effective solution to sensing requirements in the factory automation marketplace. LP-22 series potentiometers are expertly constructed to satisfy applications like robotic control, X-Y table feedback, injection molding machine slides, press or die arm position, control valve shaft position, and mil/aero test stands.
Features of the LP-22:
Full ranges from 25 to 300 mm (1-12 inches)
Self-aligning swivel rod eyes on both ends
Environmentally sealed to IEC IP-64
Operating temperature -40 to 150 C
Linearity better than 0.10%
The ruggedly constructed 22 mm OD anodized aluminum housing with a 1m 3-conductor cable keeps out dust and permits an LP-22 potentiometer to withstand high shocks (50 gs single hit) and vibration (20 gs). Swivel rod eye ends are standard to facilitate self-alignment during installation. Depending on range, LP-22 series potentiometers are powered with a maximum input of between 12 and 36 Volts DC at 12 mA or less, and their maximum output resistance varies between 1 and 5 kilohms.
