Florence, KY – Balluff’s new Micropulse® ProCompact linear position transducer for demanding linear feedback applications is rugged, accurate, and protected against environmental hazards such as high humidity, ambient temperature variations, high-pressure wash down, and exposure to caustic chemicals.
The Micropulse ProCompact rod-style transducer incorporates field-proven, non-contact magnetostrictive technology into a welded, hermetically sealed stainless steel housing providing superior long-term reliability and service life compared to competing contact-based sensors such as linear or rotary potentiometers.
The ProCompact is ideal for the following types of applications: hydropower and other wet applications, railroad maintenance equipment, steel production, sawmill applications, or any other application involving high humidity, ambient temperature variations, and high-pressure wash down.
The Micropulse ProCompact linear position transducer comes in standard ¾-in.-16 UNF (optional M18 x 1.5) mounting threads, allowing the transducer to be installed into hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. Right out of the box, the ProCompact is environmentally protected to IP68. For even more demanding applications, the threaded fitting on the ProCompact housing can accommodate a cable protection system, offering environmental protection up to IP69K.
