GHSE 750 position sensors

Macro Sensors introduced the GHSE 750 line of 24V spring-loaded position sensors with accurate position measurement for a variety of dimensional gaging applications.

These stainless steel, hermetically-sealed 19mm diameter sensors may be used in industrial gaging systems, electronic dial indicators, fabricated metal products gaging, materials testing apparatus as well as large shaft TIR measurement. Available in ranges of 2.5mm to 100mm, the maximum linearity error for a GHSE 750 series sensor is 0.25 percent of full scale output. Offered in a ready-to-use package for position measurements, the configuration of the GHSE 750 sensor supports longer range gaging applications.

These sensors consist of a spring-loaded shaft running in a precision sleeve bearing, which is connected to the core of an LVDT. Because the core and coil are assembled into a spring-loaded assembly, the mechanical set-up of the sensor into automated machinery is less complicated and more cost effective than other sensor configurations, according to the company. The coil windings are sealed against hostile environments to IEC standard IP-68. Electrical termination is also made through a glass-sealed axial connector.

The position sensor operates from DC inputs of 15Vdc to 24Vdc and generates a pre-calibrated 0-10Vdc output. The output operates with most PLCs, digital indicators, ADCs, computer-based data processors and QC data collection systems. Units can be operated directly from a typical PLC's 24-volt power for added convenience.

Pricing for the GHSE 750 series starts at $536.
