With their LRW2/3 series linear potentiometers, WayCon Positionsmesstechnik offers precise and cost-effective sensors that are used in test engineering to check dimensional stability – particularly when there are a lot of measuring points –, lifetime and mechanical load of components. The linear displacement transducers are further used in the manufacturing petrol tanks for cars, for example, to determine and monitor the dimensions of the tank.
The LRW2/3 series linear potentiometers are characterized by their compact size and double bearing push rod. The return spring allows them to be used as feelers without needing to be installed to the device under test. The sensors measure at a process speed of max. 10 m/s and a linearity of max. ±0.05 % of the measurement range (LRW2) and ±0.1 % (LRW3).
The LRW2 sensors are available for measurement ranges from 10 to 150 mm and have a spring button with ball point, ensuring the displacement transducers can travel to the object being measured. This allows several scanning spots to be detected accurately, quickly and easily.
LRW3 sensors are available for measurement ranges up to 50 mm and feature a spring loaded feeler with roller tip. Both sensors are protection class IP40 and designed for working temperatures from -30 °C to +100 °C.
WayCon Positionsmesstechnik further offers various types of linear potentiometers for use in different applications.

Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers
20.07.2018 | Purdue University
A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
