Maximum precision with many measuring points
With their LRW2/3 series linear potentiometers, WayCon Positionsmesstechnik offers precise and cost-effective sensors that are used in test engineering to check dimensional stability – particularly when there are a lot of measuring points –, lifetime and mechanical load of components. The linear displacement transducers are further used in the manufacturing petrol tanks for cars, for example, to determine and monitor the dimensions of the tank.
The LRW2/3 series linear potentiometers are characterized by their compact size and double bearing push rod. The return spring allows them to be used as feelers without needing to be installed to the device under test. The sensors measure at a process speed of max. 10 m/s and a linearity of max. ±0.05 % of the measurement range (LRW2) and ±0.1 % (LRW3). The LRW2 sensors are available for measurement ranges from 10 to 150 mm and have a spring button with ball point, ensuring the displacement transducers can travel to the object being measured. This allows several scanning spots to be detected accurately, quickly and easily. LRW3 sensors are available for measurement ranges up to 50 mm and feature a spring loaded feeler with roller tip. Both sensors are protection class IP40 and designed for working temperatures from -30 °C to +100 °C.
WayCon Positionsmesstechnik further offers various types of linear potentiometers for use in different applications.
