Strainsense Carbon Linear Potentiometer

StrainSense linear potentiometers are now available with mechanical protection for the moving shaft.

A carbon fibre sleeve in mounted to the moving end to prevent objects, eg stones, from damaging the shaft.  The protection makes little difference to the sensor weight with a 50mm stroke 9.4mm diameter unit adding only 5g

Typical applications include monitoring suspension for autosport, vehicle testing and agricultural machinery.
