Process and control today | Linear position measurement in harsh environments at a competitive price: The range of heavy-duty inductive linear position sensors offers long life and maximum reliability
03/08/2022 Variohm EuroSensor Ltd
The ILT series linear position sensors from Variohm EuroSensor’s sister company, Ixthus Instrumentation, are an economical choice for precision linear measurement tasks in difficult areas such as construction and agricultural machinery and heavy industrial installations. The durable and robust IP67/69K rated sensor has an independent linearity specification of +/- 0.25% (FSO at 20°C) and is supplied in a choice of eleven stroke lengths from 25mm to 600mm. The ILT’s non-contact inductive sensor technology measurement principle provides long life and maximum reliability with a rated MTBF of 360,000 hours. A 35mm diameter anodized aluminum enclosure provides maximum protection for the sensor electronics with vibration and shock specifications of 10g and 40g respectively (IEC-68-2-6 and IEC-68-2- 29).
Mechanical and electrical options built into the ILT Series make selection and installation easy. Standard mounting options for the rod type sensor include optional 8mm diameter steel or plastic rod ends, M8 female threads on both ends can also be specified. A choice of four standard electrical input/output options include 0.5…4.5 Vdc from a 24 Vdc input as well as 0.5…4.5 V ratiometric from a +5 Vdc nominal. Other options are 2 and 3 wire options for 4…20 mA output from 24 VDC input. The extended operating temperature range for the 2 meter shielded cable interface option, available across the ILT series, is -40 to +100°C, with the ratiometric version offering an extended upper limit to 125°C . Alternatively, an M12 connector version is available with a temperature range limited to -40°C to +85°C and an overall environmental sealing rating downgraded to IP67.
