Description

The PT420 is available with full-scale measurement ranges from 2 to 100 inches, providing a 0/4-20 mA feedback signal that is linearly proportional to the position of a traveling stainless-steel extension cable.

Use the PT420 to provide position feedback on hydraulic cylinders in factories and utilities, gate position in fresh or wastewater distribution systems, or valve opening in process-related applications. The PT420 installs in minutes by mounting its base to a fixed surface and attaching its cable to the movable object. The PT420 works without perfect parallel alignment, and when itsstainless steel cable is retracted, its height is less than 5”.
