Mechanical Sensor for Detection of 1 or 2 Positions

Microprecision is introducing a family of mechanical sensors for very accurate position detection. The new MP600 series of mechanical position sensors is designed to detect two positions within a single, compact electromechanical component. Two independent commutations can sense two previously defined positions to within a few microns of accuracy. The two positions can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis. Repeatability is less than 5 µm and, depending on cable selection, the operating temperature can go from -40°C up to 130°C. The cable can be supplied with a connector termination, typically M8 or M12.
