Programmable Position Sensors

Position Sensor Manufacturers ASM have introduced a new
Programmable version of their standard range of
Cable Actuated Position Sensors.

In addition to Potentiometer, 0-10v, 4-20mA, ADSI, CANbus,
Incremental Encoder, Absolute Encoder, SSI, RS232, Profibus
and Interbus-S, the new sensors, with ranges from 0-50mm to
0-40,000mm, offer both 0-10 volts and 4-20mA output while
being programmable for range and offset.

Programming is simple. Pull out the cable to a selected 0v or 4mA
point, touch a pin to 0v, move the cable to a selected 10v or 20mA
point and touch another pin to 0v. The sensor then works between
the selected points for 0-10v or 4-20mA output.

Additionally, the sensor can also be programmed in the
opposite way e.g. 10-0 volts and 20-4 mA.
