Magnetic Hall Contactless Linear Position Sensors

The magnetic hall contactless linear position series are based on true solid-state 'hall-voltage/magnetic-field' measurement technology, which provide a long life, low noise output sensor for harsh environments.

Available with single, dual, triple and quadruple outputs they benefit from improved output signal linearisation over the measurement range, overall sensor accuracy and higher operating temperatures, compared to similar position sensor products. Long life is assured, as there is no electrical contact between the sensing circuit and the activating shaft.

With a measurement range up to 300mm (12"), they offer a versatile position measurement solution in control and monitoring systems that experience severe shock and vibration or suffer fluid and debris contamination.
