Position Transducer offers improved sealing and longer life.
The latest derivative of Variohm's popular VLP range of
Linear Position Transducers is the model VLP-F which is
a flange mounted spring loaded version.
Designed to be mechanically compatible with industry standard mountings
the VLP-F offers improved sealing through the use of a double shaft seal
arrangement. The incorporation of Novotechnik elements and wipers also
means that the service life is better than competitive devices. A final bonus
is that the body length on the longest unit, which has a 150 mm stroke, is a
massive 36 mm shorter than similar devices from other manufacturers.
The VLP-F has a spring loaded shaft for use on gauging applications.
It also comes equipped with a hardened steel ball gauging head. This head
is designed for applications where the transducer is used to make a
measurement and then withdrawn from its working position. If an application
calls for a transducer which can continually monitor a profile or web Variohm
can supply a head which incorporates a roller.
In common with all potentiometric position transducers the VLP-F is an
absolute device which offers a very high repeat accuracy. This feature
makes it suitable for use on a wide variety of machines where the ability
to set the machine and virtually forget about it is desirable. The VLP-F knows
where it is at all times, even after an interruption in the power supply.
