Gefran Magnetostrictive Linear Position Transducers from AutomationDirect

Aug. 26, 2021

AutomationDirect has added Gefran WPG and WPP series magnetostrictive linear position transducers. These transducers work like other linear position sensors by translating a linear position to an electrical signal. However, they are contactless, which provides a longer life because there is no mechanical wear; since they use magnetostrictive technology, they are also immune to electromagnetic interferences.

Transducers are available in stroke lengths from 50 to 500mm and with an analog output signal of either 0-10VDC or 4-20mA for single output models. Double output models provide either a 0-10VDC and reverse 10-0VDC signal, or a 4-20mA with a 20-4mA reverse signal.

The electrical connection is made via a standard DIN connector or M12 connection, and all units are IP67 rated. Cursors are sold separately.

The Gefran magnetostrictive linear position transducers start at $222.00 and have a 3-year warranty.
