AutomationDirect adds Linear Position Potentiometers

April 20, 2020
AutomationDirect has released the Gefran linear potentiometers and accessories, used to detect position and linear direction movement.

GEFRAN linear potentiometers and accessories are now available from AutomationDirect. Linear potentiometers are used to detect position and linear direction movement. A sliding contact moves along a linear resistive element acting as a variable resistor. The proportional change in resistance indicates the position and provides a distance measurement signal. A signal conditioner can be used with the potentiometers to convert the signal to 0-10V or 4-20mA.

Eight series of linear potentiometers are available. Configuration styles include slide housing, heavy duty cylinder with rod eyes, rodless slide, spring loaded with ball tip, 1/2inch diameter cylinder with flange, rod eye or bracket mounting, and 3/4inch cylinder with rod eye mounting. Stroke lengths vary from 10 to 1000mm depending on the series.

Starting at $146.00, Gefran linear potentiometers from AutomationDirect are CE approved and have a 3-year warranty.
