The R-Series Ethernet POWERLINK sensor offers a resolution of 1 mm for lengths from 25 mm to 20,000 mm. Position and velocity measurements can be provided for up to four locations on the sensor.
For most applications the standard RH (rod-style typically used in hydraulic cylinders) and RP (profile extrusion-style for easy machine mounting) sensors are used with the standard-type sensor magnets. However, for higher accuracy requirements, a linearity correction option is available to improve the sensor’s non-linearity specification within +/- 20 mm. Even better sensor accuracy is available, (+/- 10 mm), when using a special proprietary magnet matched to the sensor.
