AutomationDirect has added Gefran WPG and WPP series magnetostrictive linear position transducers. These transducers work like other linear position sensors by translating a linear position to an electrical signal. However, they are contactless, which provides a longer life because there is no mechanical wear; since they use magnetostrictive technology, they are also immune to electromagnetic interferences.
Transducers are available in stroke lengths from 50 to 500mm and with an analog output signal of either 0-10VDC or 4-20mA for single output models. Double output models provide either a 0-10VDC and reverse 10-0VDC signal, or a 4-20mA with a 20-4mA reverse signal.
The electrical connection is made via a standard DIN connector or M12 connection, and all units are IP67 rated. Cursors are sold separately.
The Gefran magnetostrictive linear position transducers start at $222.00 and have a 3-year warranty.
