The LinTran inductive linear encoders are considered to be non-contact absolute linear position measuring devices that employ a unique inductive method. Each linear encoder comprises of two main components – a target and a stator. When compared to the target, the stator is longer and is powered with an electrical supply. The stator can be moving or stationary.
An electrical output from the stator reveals where the target is placed relative to the stator. The target does not have any electrical connections and can be moving or stationary.
- Non-contact technology for greater reliability in challenging environments
- Wide range of measurement ranges and output modes available
- 12 bit resolution; ±0.25% full scale linearity
High-Reliability Inductive Linear Encoder Technology
The LinTran encoders are sealed to IP67 standards and are perfectly ideal for harsh environments where electrical contacts or optical transducers would be unreliable. The LinTran linear encoder range offers a cost effective substitute to magnetostrictive devices, precision potentiometers or LVDTs.
The LinTran inductive linear position encoders comprise of broad mounting tolerances and are field-programmable without a PC.
