Curtiss-Wright SLS130

13mm Body, Stroke Length to 200mm Electrical Stroke E – Linear Displacement Sensor.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles), SLS130 is a range of linear displacement sensors designed to provide maximum performance benefits within an extremely compact, lightweight package in stroke lengths from 25 to 200mm.

  • Short body to the stroke length
  • Sealing to IP66 and corrosion-resistant rod-end bearings
  • Cable assembly integrally molded
  • Significantly reduced weight
  • A preferred range of configurations are available from stock in the UK
  • CE approved
  • Interchangeable with Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) SLS130 (Replaced HLP129) linear potentiometers

Using the proven benefits of Hybrid Track Technology and including a number of unique design features, the SLS130 displacement sensor is ideally suited to high volume OEM manufacturers, where high performance and reliability with competitive pricing and rapid dispatch has paramount importance.

Hybrid Track The hybrid track comprises a high resistivity conductive plastic film bonded to a precision wire-wound element. The conductive plastic film is wiped by a precious metal contact. The technology provides infinite resolution and a very long life (since the majority of the current still flows in the wire, the carbon content of the conductive plastic film is low, and the film is therefore very hard). Track linearity is very good, temperature coefficient of resistance is low and predictable and resistance stability with change in humidity is excellent. -
