Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its sensor product offering using LVIT Technology by adding the LZ-19 series linear position sensors. The contactless devices are designed for use in factory automation or assembly equipment applications where space is a premium, as well as for external mounting on pneumatic cylinders to sense rod position.
The LVITs from Alliance Sensors are offered in nominal full-scale ranges from 2.5 to 750 mm with favourable stroke-to-body-length ratios, the company says.
The sensors have a 19 mm diameter stainless steel or optional aluminum body with a 1 m long cable for I/O connections.
The 6 mm diameter through-bore of series units gives adequate clearance for its 5.2 mm diameter PVDF-sheathed moving rod made of the same material as its housing.
The through-bore feature also means that these sensors are not subject to damage from typical mechanical overstroking.
