Main features & Overview

Overview

Linear transducer with wire potentiometer technology.

Excellent repeatability, high IP rating, resistance to shock and vibrations, and high electromagnetic compatibility make this transducer suitable for mobile hydraulic applications.

Developed to guarantee a robust, high-performance solution for applications such as agricultural vehicles, earth-moving machines, and hoisting equipment.
