This industrially graded CE marked displacement sensor is offered by our sister company ElastiSense.
Unlike piston-based displacement sensors (LVDTs, Potentiometers, and Linear Encoders), these sensors can measure displacement while tolerating off-axis shear motion of a machine thanks to the underlying electroactive polymer technology being stretchable in all three dimensions.
With 24VDC supply the sensors outputs an analogue current in the range of 4-20mA. The output signal is linearly proportional to the displacement i.e. 4mA corresponds to 0mm and 20mA represents the maximum displacement of the sensor as indicated in the datasheet.
