Profile micropulse transducers

For precise positioning in really fast applications

In hermetically sealed aluminium housing

Profile transducers are contactless, absolute measurement systems for accurate measurement of one or more measured displacements. They consist of a hermetically sealed aluminium profile housing built to protection class IP67. The magnets in the position encoder act on the waveguide through the wall of the aluminium profile.

With free-moving and guided position encoders

The position encoders are available in free-moving and guided versions. Free-moving position encoders are secured directly to the machine component to be measured and move along with it at a certain distance above and along the profile. The advantage of this is that no large demands are placed on the guide precision in the process. The sensors tolerate a horizontal and vertical offset of just a few millimetres.
