Potentiometer-based sensors offer impressive price vs. performance: Novotechnik’s well-proven LWH series linear position sensors gain from design optimisation

The non-comprising, highly durable and long-life characteristics of potentiometer-based linear sensors, plus their signal processing simplicity, makes them a compelling choice for new applications when comparable speed, accuracy, linearity, resolution, hysteresis, and temperature range would entail...

Variohm launch new medical NTC thermistor

The new thermistor is encapsulated in a brown Stycast thermally conductive epoxy coating and electrical interfacing is via two 76 mm, 32 AWG solid Alloy 180 leads.  Its miniature form, measuring just 2.4 mm at the tip, will suit straightforward integration into many types of medical probes and...

Long travel position feedback with CAN SAE 1939 comms: Combilift’s CSS container loading system uses Variohm EuroSensor supplied cable extension transducers

This innovative system features a large platform where goods are pre-loaded on a powered steel slip-sheet, and with integral laser-assisted container alignment and hydraulic levelling the slip sheet and its payload are driven directly into the container hold using Combilift’s patented...
