Magnetopot-Non Contact Liquid Level Sensor
The MagnetoPot is new non-contacting linear potentiometer based upon a fully sealed membrane strip and a simple magnet that together provide position feedback from 8 mm to 1200 mm in a low profile and robust design with exceptionally long life capability.
The MagnetoPot is used for liquid level and other harsh applications such as chemical industry tanks and containers. This innovative sensor allows designers to assemble the sensor on the outside of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, which connects with the internal magnet of the cylinder.
This allows the cylinder to produce linear output and at the same time avoid the internal liquids and grease common to cylinders. Alternatively, the Magnetopot can be affixed to the outside of a liquid tank or directly next to the motion device, creating an almost imperceptible drag and giving linear output for the complete motion without contact.
The MagnetoPot uses an internal and external magnet to make pressure on the pot, indicating the position. This unique setup allows linear position in very harsh environments such as hydraulic actuators and liquid environments.
The MagnetoPot comes with a magnet internally, but you will need to provide your own magnet externally.
Unit comes with adhesive backing. Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly.
