PT5AV Industrial series

PT5AV Industrial series



The PT5AV is a combination position and velocity transducer. A precision plastic-hybrid potentiometer provides accurate position feedback while a self- generating DC tachometer provides a velocity signal that is proportional to the speed of the traveling measuring cable. Like Celesco’s other transducers, the PT5AV installs in minutes, functions properly without perfectly parallel alignment, and fits easily into small areas.  The PT5AV also has an optional unique thermoplastic measuring cable that has virtually an infinite fatigue life for high-cycle applications.
