Extension Transducers survive
Sensors UK has introduced a series of extension transducers
designed for operation in harsh environments where they can
monitor position or movement of hydraulic equipment, mobile
cranes, theatre stages, stacking systems and production machinery.
The GS80 series transducers provide output signals that are linear
and proportional to movements from a few centimetres up to 30m.
They are housed in an aluminium case, protected to lP-65, and
incorporate a wear-resistant water and dust wiper, with bellows,
on the cable path. A cable clip is attached to the moving element
and the transducer body fixed to a stationary surface.
As the target moves in relation to the transducer body, the cable is
withdrawn from a drum spool. A constant torque returnspring motor
maintains cable tension during extraction and return. The number of
drum revolutions is counted by an angle encoder either potentiometrically,
incrementally or absolutely coded and converted into an analogue
or digital signal.
