Cost and delivery times reduced for new SLS095 Sensor.
Penny & Giles Controls is launching a new linear
potentiometer in its SLS (Sealed Linear Sensor) range.
As well as being a direct replacement for its long serving HLP095,
the SLS095 has been designed specifically to offer OEM volumes
on 3-5 day delivery lead times and at a significantly reduced cost.
The new potentiometer, which is the size of an average pen, will
offer IP50 and IP66 sealing options and stroke lengths of 10mm,
20mm, 30mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm.
Three mounting options are available, all fitted with a 3-core PUR
cable. Two are plain body versions that can be ordered with
either a flange mounting kit or body clamp mountings. They are
offered as replacements for the current HLP095 and have
bodies 7.5mm shorter.
The third option is a new rod end bearing version, which is a
first for Penny & Giles in this size of potentiometer. This model
will have one rod fixed to the end of the body and the other
adjustable on the M2 threaded shaft. Both bearings will be
stainless steel sleeved polymer types with 2mm mounting holes.
A Penny & Giles spokesman says the new rod end bearing
version expands the applications and markets for the SLS095,
and adds that typical applications for the new short stroke
sensor will include motorsport, robotics, animatronics and
small special purpose machines. He also claims that the 3-5
day delivery offers OEMs a real advantage in a market
where 4 to 6 week lead times are the norm.
