  • Precision manufacture
  • High accuracy
  • Half bridge
  • CE marking
  • Repairable


These transducers are supplied with two meters of black oil-resistant cable terminated into a five-pin 270 degree DIN connector as standard.  Alternative connectors may be specified at the time of ordering.


Calibration components are mounted on a small PCB within the connector housing, this PCB can be replaced by a network of components should custom connectors be required.  Calibration is carried out using a computer controlled process and high-precision optical encoders.  A calibration certificate can be supplied on request.
