Opkon linear potentiometers ( http://www.evrtp.com/opkon/index.shtml ) are a reliable and economical option for many applications. Some key benefits include:
- Broad Stroke Options: 50mm to over 1m
- Outputs: Ratiometric, Voltage (0-10V) and Current (4-20mA)
- Excellent Repeatability <0.01mm
- Wide variety of housing profiles to fit any application
- 100 Million Cycle Lifetime
- IP65 Environmental Rating
For decades potentiometers have been plagued by wear issues. To address this Opkon has launched their Advanced Ruby Series. Designed to last up to 100 million cycles, these potentiometers rely on high quality double-wipers made from gold and palladium in combination with Teflon coatings to reduce rod friction. Although not a replacement for non-contact sensors in the most extreme environments, the Advanced Ruby Series offers a significant increase in long-term reliability and accuracy at a small increase in cost.
