Potentiometers For Linear Measurement

Elap linear potentiometers are widely used in industrial applications for measuring and controlling absolute linear displacement. As they are absolute detecting devices, these linear potentiometers maintain positional data even during power off. They are particularly suited to applications where it is difficult to reset the system datum point upon power up. The Elap range includes a variety of sizes, strokes, resistance values and mounting fittings, to meet the specific needs of the application. They are available in square or round section bodies, and offer measuring strokes from 25 to 950 mm.
