Non-Contact Position Sensor Flatter Than A Pancake

ASM presents the posichron PCFP25, a contact-less, ultra-flat magnetostrictive position sensor for space-restricted applications.

Measuring a mere 8-mm thick, the component is an absolute, non-contact, and wear-free position sensor with measurement ranges from 100 mm to 5,750 mm.

The sensor system consists of a magnetostrictive waveguide and a moveable position magnet. The sensor is resistant to dirt, moisture and dust, and resists shocks up to 50g and has protection class IP67.
