NEW TAPE EXTENSION SENSORS FROM AUTOMATED CONTROL

ASM has extended and improved its wide range of linear measurement sensors.

ASM has introduced the POSITAPE range of linear sensors which take the basic principal of a standard manual tape measure and re-engineers it to provide an electronic output.

ASM has made significant improvements by utilising its proprietary 10mm wide and 0.08mm thick, flexible stainless steel tape as the measuring element for this new style of linear sensor.

These sensors are now available in Australia from Automated Control.

Unlike wire based sensors, the life of the tape is unaffected when using multiple direction changing pulley’s for those difficult to reach places.

Its flat smooth surface prevents ice and material build-up, making it ideally suited to harsher climates and environments where mechanical linear sensing devices are often prone to failure.

At the heart of the sensor is an ASM PRAM non-contact, absolute position, multi-turn encoder with on board signal conditioning.

With the sensing element electronics fully encapsulated and then magnetically coupled to the drum arrangement, the POSITAPE range of sensors provide unmatched durability.

This new improved system enables ASM to offer a standard linearity of 0.10% or 0.05% as an option, within a wide range of compact housings. Many forms of analogue and digital absolute outputs are available and include SSI and CAN bus options to meet today's industry requirements.

Automated Control specialises in the national supply of process and automation control equipment to a diverse range of industries that encompass the water, industrial, food, mining and petrochemical markets.
