Linear potentiometer LRW2/3 - Maximum precision with many measuring points

17.05.2017

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.

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
