  • April 2020 - Linear Position Potentiometers

    We are pleased to announce GEFRAN linear potentiometers and accessories are now available from AutomationDirect. Linear potentiometers are used to detect position and linear direction movement. A sliding contact moves along a linear resistive element acting as a variable resistor. The proportional change in resistance indicates the position and provides a distance measurement signal. A signal conditioner can be used with the potentiometers to convert the signal to 0-10V or 4-20mA.

    Eight series of linear potentiometers are available: configuration styles include slide housing, heavy duty cylinder with rod eyes, rodless slide, spring loaded with ball tip, 1/2inch diameter cylinder with flange, rod eye or bracket mounting, and 3/4inch cylinder with rod eye mounting. Stroke lengths vary from 10 to 1000mm depending on the series. Linear potentiometers are CE approved and have a 3-year warranty. Click on the following link for more detail -
