Valve Position Sensors

The valve position series are a high performance linear sensor, which are used extensively for actuator and solenoid positional feedback applications. Designed to operate to a maximum working pressure of 300 bar, sealing is completed by either an O-ring for threaded or sprung shaft mounting, or a gasket for flange mounting. They are available with a choice of contactless technologies and measurement ranges, with the short stroke providing a measurement range of 1mm to 10mm and the longer stroke model 25mm to 100mm.

VHL2003 series

  • Measurement 5mm to 10mm
  • Sprung loaded shaft
  • Metric or imperial thread mounting
  • Maximum temperature 150°C (302°F)
  • Pressure area operates to 300 bar
  • Sealed to IP68/IP69K

The VHL2003 magnetic hall linear series is a sprung loaded short stroke sensor, which is designed for use in severe vibration and high cyclic conditions. Constructed from a Ø20mm aluminium alloy case, they are specified for precise positional feedback for actuator and solenoid valves, where performance and reliability are part of the design criteria.
