Limes LA50 / BA5

Robust and versatile
Resolution 0.01 mm / Measuring length max. 20 m
- Sturdy zinc pressure die-cast housing.
- Position changes are also detected in the de-energized state -
no homing necessary - wear-free.
- Automatic distance detection if the distance is too large
between sensor and magnetic tape.
• Cover strip to protect the magnetic strip.
- Address, baud rate, bus termination can be changed via microswitch.
Interface SSI, CANopen.

Simple installation
• Simple adhesive mounting of the magnetic strip.
• Generous installation tolerance.
• Requires very little installation space.
• Warning signals via status LED if the magnetic field is too weak.
