Linear Position Sensors
LIN Sensors – Kit with magnet
Thin, programmable, non-contact magnetic position sensors
with dual outputs available
The LIN Series sensors are non-contact linear position sensors with one or two independent outputs. The sensors operate through the
use of Hall Effect technology with magnetic fields generated by permanent magnets. They provide a linear change in voltage output
(ratiometric to the input voltage) corresponding to a linear displacement of the actuator magnet.
The included actuator magnet is specifically paired to the sensor and is required to assure proper operation. Other magnets may yield
less than optimal performance.
Easy setup and robust monitoring with M4 screws
Dual independent (redundant) outputs assure high reliability
Custom programming available for: range, slope, PWM output
No mechanical interface means no parts to wear out or jam
Comes with 20 AWG 305 mm (12”) discrete wire leads or harness
