Rectilinear Potentiometers

A variety of rectilinear potentiometers (also known as linear potentiometers) is available from Durham Instruments. Our offering includes spring loaded, in-cylinder, compact, lightweight, and high-performance models.  These position sensors are used for a range of applications. For instance, in-cylinder models are used for hydraulic and pneumatic actuators in manufacturing and automation applications. We also supply potentiometers used in the aerospace, transportation, mining, forestry, food, institutional, power generation industries. Our company offers 40 years of industry experience and can offer customized products to meet any requirement.

Rectilinear potentiometers

One example of the potentiometers available is the SLS130. This instrument offers maximum performance with an extremely compact and lightweight design. It features CE approval, integrally moulded cable assembly, short body to stroke length, and IP66 sealing with corrosion resistant rod end bearings.  With their high performance, reliability, and competitive pricing, these potentiometers are well-suited to high volume OEM manufacturers.

Another example is the MLS130 potentiometer that was designed to offer a competitively priced solution for the motorsport industry. It is a highly reliable absolute position sensor that can reduce maintenance and re-calibration requirements. In the event of a system power failure, there is no loss of position information.  

Both of these potentiometers come in stroke lengths from 25 to 200 mm and feature hybrid track technology. This feature provides long track life and virtually infinite resolution.  For more information on the variety of potentiometers available, visit the Durham Instruments website.
