Series M transducers from Space Age Control are designed as low cost positioning solutions for OEMs that also need quick turnaround. The company will ship its transducer in bulk or single quantities the same day they're ordered, according to Tom Anderson, who manages the company's application development. With a maximum range of 85 inches, the design uses a reduced fleet angle for better repeatability and less chance of cable overwrap. Through a combination of fixed and slotted holes on a mounting flange, the transducer can be oriented at any angle from 0 through 360 degrees. Detection options range from a voltage dividing sensor and potentiometer to encoders with outputs of 1200, 5000, or 8192 pulses per revolution.
