White Paper - Opkon linear potentiometers
Opkon linear potentiometers ( http://www.evrtp.com/opkon/index.shtml ) can be found in applications throughout the world, providing reliable linear positioning at an affordable price for nearly 25 years. Customers can choose from a variety of base sensors and specify signal output, body profile, length and mounting type. The sensors are then produced in approximately 1-2 weeks. Opkon linear sensors are ideal for:
- Industrial Automation
- Material Handling
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.
Everight Position prides itself in partnering with product lines that provide world-class performance and service. Opkon’s commitment to build-to-order sensors with short lead-times fits that model well. Some options offered include:
- Lengths: 50mm to over 1m
- Outputs: Ratiometric, Voltage (0-10V) and Current (4-20mA)
- Numerous Body Profiles and Mounting Connections
- Lifetime: 100 Million Cycles
- IP65 Environmental Rating
