UFPMA, UFPMC - Displacement Sensor, Ultra Flat

Vishay

The UFPMA/UFPMC Series are flexible potentiometer membranes and represent a new generation of linear or angular position measurement.

Initially developed for MAS applications, these ultra thin components have a very high integration capacity when the dimension stress is a key parameter, like the industrial actuators for example.
Its IP68 level allows it to resist to harsh environments by guarantying a good repeatability of the signal and may simplify the design of some applications requiring protection from dust and water .
On request, Vishay MCB is able to customize the standard version on some electrical and mechanical features.
