Magnet-less linear position sensors

linear position sensors

Bestech Australia has announced the SS-7 Series Linear Position Sensors, which are used to measure the ram position of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders in industrial, mobile, or subsea applications. This new model features a no-magnet design, drastically reducing installation and cost of ownership without sacrificing accuracy specifications. The sensors come in 4 versions: ME (embedded version), MR (port mount version), MHP (port mount 25mm hex housing) and SS-7 (subsea port mount), and fit into a gun-drilled cylinder similar to how a magnetostrictive sensor would be installed but without the counterbore necessary for the magnet.

Key features:

  • No magnet required
  • SS-7 Series operates to a depth of 3600m
  • Measurement range from 25 to 600 mm
  • IEC IP-67 aluminum or stainless steel housing
  • Contactless; no wearout
  • 85oC operation (with 105oC option)
  • DC voltage or current analog output
  • SenSet Field Adjustable Scaling
