G-Series Model GTE Embedded Redundant Position Sensor

Brand: Temposonics an Amphenol Company
Does not ship to United States
G-Series model GTE sensors are extremely robust and are ideal for continuous operation under harsh industrial conditions.

The rod housing is capable of withstanding high pressures such as those found in hydraulic cylinders. G-Series redundant sensors provide accurate, linear-position measurement for applications that benefit from redundancy due to safety relevant functions.

G-Series Embedded Redundant sensors feature two independent measuring systems contained in one compact housing. Each measuring system contains its own channel with sensor element, power and evaluation electronics and output signal.

Each channel has it's own output cable. All sensor elements are integrated in one pressure proofed, high-grade, 10 mm (0.39") diameter stainless steel rod.

The redundant sensor easily installs in applications measuring linear movements of control valves, linear drives, fluid cylinders and machines.
Features
  • Linear, absolute measurement
  • Contains two independent measuring systems in a single compact housing
  • Non-contact sensing technology
  • Available with IECEx certification for hazardous areas
