The ME (embedded version) and MR (port-mount version) Series fit into a gun-drilled cylinder in the same way a magnetostrictive sensor would be installed but without the counterbore necessary for the magnet. Features include no requirement for a magnet, measurement ranges from 4 to 36 inches (100 to 900 mm), operation to 5000 psi or 10,000 feet (3000 m) depth, IEC IP-67 aluminum or stainless steel housing, contactless operation with no wearout, 85 ºC operation (105 ºC option), DC voltage or current analog output and field adjustable scaling. The sensors are based on a contactless inductive sensing technology that employs a solid probe construction style which requires only a simple conductive tubular target or a small diameter deep hole gun drilled in the cylinder rod for operation rather than needing a permanent magnet ring or some other type of special target. The SenSet calibration feature permits the user to match the analog output of the sensor to the motion of the actuator or cylinder on a stand-alone basis rather than the user having to scale the sensor's basic output in an associated control system.
