This industrially graded CE marked displacement sensor is offered by our sister company ElastiSense.
Unlike piston-based displacement sensors like LVDTs, Potentiometers, and Linear Encoders, the ElastiSense sensors can measure displacement while tolerating off-axis motion of a machine or structure thanks to the underlying flexible electroactive polymer technology being stretchable in all three dimensions.
The inherent mechanical flexibility and robust sensor design makes them virtually immune to damage through shock, vibration, and misalignment.
These unique characteristics make the sensors ideal for aggressive applications within factory automation, heavy duty vehicles, structural health monitoring, and offshore.
- Easy to install
- Ingress protected
- Accurate and repeatable
- Shock and vibration resistant
- Highly customizable and cost competitive
- Reduces total cost of ownership
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.
