LTS POSITION SENSOR

LTS POSITION SENSOR

The LTS is a magnetic position sensor for measuring linear strokes of

actuators. The position of the piston is measured without contact and

given via a configurable analogue output signal, as voltage or current.

The body of the LTS is very compact, so it can be used in applications

where limited space is available.

This position sensor can measure the strokes of various families of

actuators up to 256 mm.

Correct operation requires a magnetic field strength of between 4 and

30 mT.

The measurement range can be regulated accurately using the Teach-in

button (zero point and end point). Teach-in can be performed regardless

of the polarity of the magnetic field and the position of the sensor. The

yellow ON light comes on when the piston is in measuring range.

The position sensor is out of the measuring range when:

• the yellow light is off; and

• the voltage signal is 11V (range 0-10V) or the current 3 mA

(range 4-20 mA).
