Membrane Contactless Sensors MMP
The technology of the Metallux MMP seriers is based on the MTP series and can be used for linear and rotary position measurement. The MMP is a sealed membrane sensor that guarantees a contactless measurement and a position sensing in a wide range of applications . Due to integrated ferromagnetic foils inside the sensor it does not require a wiper or actuator to connect the collector and the resistor. Instead, the MMP is controlled by an outside magnet, which attracts the magnetic forces within the MMP to connect the foils of the membrane potentiometer. The magnet can be moved in a distance from the sensor surface so high movement speed without any wear can be achieved. MMP sensors show full linear travel of hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders and are used in level measurement applications.
