GB-M/GB-T Linear Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to United States
Robust, non-contact and wear free, the Temposonics linear position sensors provide the best durability and accurate position measurement solutions in harsh industrial environments.

The position measurement accuracy is tightly controlled by the quality of the waveguide which is manufactured by MTS Sensors. The position magnet is mounted on the moving machine part and travels non-contact over the sensor rod with the built-in waveguide.

The GB-M/GB-T is an extension of the GB-Series. Its compact housing can be easily mounted, even if there is only limited space.

Due to the high temperature resistance, no measures for cooling the sensor have to be taken – saving you time and work. Further advantages of the GB-M/GB-T sensor are: Turn me, Program me, Replace me.
