Featured Product: Temposonics RD4 position sensor


The Temposonics RD4 position sensor provides an added degree of flexibility compared to the standard R-Series rod style sensor package. The RD4 design utilizes a separate electronics housing and interconnection cable to allow installation of the sensor rod into small spaces. By relocating the electronics, the head of the sensor rod is reduced to its minimal size. This makes the RD4 ideal for use with clevis mount cylinders or any space limited cylinder application. Also, the RD4 sensor can be used for applications that require remote mounting of the sensor electronics due to environmental factors, such as, high temperatures or high levels of shock and vibration.
