Closing the gap for linear displacement measuring systems

August 29, 2019

Introducing the new LM_S 34 series solution!

It's a new compact standard resolution sensor that can be equipped with most common linear transducer interfaces. Like all magnetostrictive measuring systems from TR Electronic, the LM_S 34 functions free of friction. The position is transmitted by a movable permanent magnet. These magnets are available as sliders that slide on the profile housing of the LM_S 34 or as block magnets which have to be guided by the mechanics of the measured axis. The latter solution even allows for "overriding" of the sensor end. This makes it possible to realize innovative machine concepts in which the same sensor system is used.

Linear displacement measuring systems based on magnetostriction detect the position of moving machine parts. TR Electronic currently offers both: the industrial solution LM_I 46 with resolutions of 0.001 mm, which can also be directly equipped with Industrial Ethernet, and the basic LM_B 48 solution that has a measuring range of 2.5 m and with a resolution of 0.1 mm. The new LM_S34 closes gap between these two series. The LM_S 34 offers a flat profile housing for machine installation. Measuring lengths are available up to 3 m in increments of 5 mm and the LM_S 34 achieves a resolution of 0.01 mm. The measuring system is noticeably smaller than Series 48 or 46 mm of the other families.
