The R-Series sensor is compatible with EtherNet/IP devices. This sensor is available in a variety of mechanical styles ranging from 25 mm to 20,000 mm. Position and velocity measurements can be provided for multiple locations on the sensor to ensure optimum control characteristics even when driving complex, multi-position tasks. The sensor features position-sensing resolution as low as 1 micron (0.00004 in.), which can be adjusted at the factory or in the field. 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. Other housings styles, such as flexible sensing elements or detached electronics, are available for space-constrained applications.
