MBX Series

Potentiometric displacement sensor in open frame with sliding cursor. Optimized for confined spaces due to its flat design with a height of 7 mm. Infinite resolution conductive plastic element. Insensitive to X-rays and EMC influences due to the potentiometric measuring principle. Available in measuring lengths (stroke lengths) of 100 / 150 / 200 mm.
