Linear Slide Gate Position Sensor with Analog Output

March 23, 2015

Electro-Sensors SG1000A is a 4-20 mA output slide gate sensor that provides independent and accurate feedback of gate or valve position to an external device such as a PLC or optional process meter. The display decodes the signal from the SG1000A and shows the percentage open between zero (fully closed) and 100 (fully open), allowing the gate to be accurately positioned when regulating the flow of a product or blending more than one raw material. The SG1000A mounts directly to the end of the slide gate drive shaft and is housed in a rugged, explosion-proof cast aluminum enclosure. Electro-Sensors SG1000 Series position sensors monitor critical position guarding against a fault condition that can result in costly process downtime, machine damage, and material waste.
