Through-bore LZ-33 Sensors for Applications Needing a Rugged Sensor with Superior Stroke-to-Length Ratio

Moorestown, New Jersey, January 19, 2022… H. G. Schaevitz LLC, Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its sensor product offering using LVIT Technology™ by adding the LZ-33 Series linear position sensors. These are contactless devices designed for use in factory automation or assembly machinery applications where space is a premium, as well as for external mounting on hydraulic cylinders to sense rod position. These LVITs are offered in nominal full scale ranges from 6 to 36 inches (150 to 900 mm) with an excellent stroke-to-length ratio so that the sensor’s overall length is only about 1.5 inches (38 mm) longer than the linear range of the unit. The sensor has a 1.315 inch (33.4 mm) outside diameter aluminum or optional stainless steel body with a 1 m long radial exit cable for I/O connections. The 0.670 inch (17 mm) diameter through-bore of an LZ-33 provides clearance for its 0.645 inch (16.4 mm) diameter moving rod, which is made of the same material as its housing. This through-bore feature means the sensor is not subject to damage from typical mechanical over stroking.
