The potentiometer conductive plastic linear posiition transducer is equipped with a conductive track that is well-suited for measuring, monitoring, and controlling mechanical strokes. Its critical function lies in ensuring a consistent DC output, which depends on the stable movement of the shaft and wiper across the transducer's surface. This versatile transducer finds application in a variety of sectors, including industrial controls, robotics, process systems, and can also serve as a replacement for a linear voltage differential transformer (LVDT). It is particularly well-suited for use in plastic injection presses, vertical presses, and a wide range of other processing machines.
