Characteristics of Gefran’s position transducers:
- Measures the definite position: upon switching the system on, the transducer immediately reads the actual
position without having to perform any mechanical repositioning.
- Extensive lifespan: from 100 million movements of the potentiometric transducers to the virtually unlimited
lifespan of the magnetostrictive transducers as a result of the lack of contact between the transducer and its
- High resolution output signal: practically infinite for the potentiometers and 0,5 m for the HYPERWAVE
- Easy installation and simple connection to the most common tools and PLCs on the market.
- Manages cursors using the same transducer is also possible to provide the speed of movement, (WPA-A /
WRA-A analogue version up to a maximum of 2 cursors, MK4-C / IK4-C in CANopen up to 2 cursors; MK4-P /
IK4-P Profibus interface up to 4 cursors).
- Rod from 10 mm up to 4000 mm
