Measurement-Specialties' PT101 position sensor has become an industry standard for thousands of applications. Available in Canada through Durham Instruments, the PT101 has many best-in-class features that make it a top choice for aircraft structural testing, hydraulic cylinder control, valve stem opening, factory automation and much more.
Key features and advantages
The PT101 position sensor has a classic stringpot design with a powder painted and anodized aluminum enclosure, which protects the plastic-hybrid precision potentiometer, allowing it to operate in temperatures from -40 to 90 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F). The lightweight unit is available in full stroke ranges up to 100 inches, and provides a voltage feedback signal linearly proportional to the position of its travelling stainless steel measuring cable. In addition, the PT101 installs in minutes and doesn’t require perfect parallel alignment. Users simply secure the base to a fixed surface and attach the measuring cable to the moving object.
