Featuring synchronous serial interface (SSI) functionality, the GB series of magnetostrictive position sensors now offer SSI or analog-output options. They can be programmed with a hand-programmer unit, a PC with USB connection, or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The Bluetooth option allows for programming in hard-to-reach places. Versions can measure maximum lengths between 25 mm and 3.25 m. The series offers high-resolution position sensing with up to ±0.02% full-scale linearity and ±0.005% FSO repeatability. With a rod-shaped design and resistance to extreme temperatures between –40° and 90°C, the sensors suit the steam industry and high temperature plants. Extended temperature range versions operate between 40° and 100°C. Supporting electronics come in flat housing with IP-67 ingress protection for adapted connectors and IP68 protection for cable outlets.
