Product Details Supplier Info More products

Variohm Eurosensor has introduced the VXP potentiometric linear position sensor. Featuring IP67 sealing and increased operational temperature capability, the sensors are particularly suitable for demanding applications in industrial measurement.

The VXP is based on the VLPM motorsports potentiometric sensor and the VLP industrial application oriented sister version.

The linear position sensor is an absolute position measuring device available for stroke lengths from 25–290mm in nine standard models.

Through the complete range the ratio of the extended full measuring length to the body length is claimed to be the smallest available in the industry — making it perfect for applications with restricted mounting space.

The conductive plastic resistance element technology utilised in the VXP and VLP series combines a resistance element built up by a specialised technique using multiple layers of printed inks that combine with multi-fingered precious metal wipers secured in an elastomer-damped mechanism.

This sensor element technology maintains a constant, smooth and uninterrupted contact even under the demanding shock and vibration conditions.
