Mechanical stroke+1.5 mm of electrical stroke
Mounting hole diameter3 mm
Travel / retracted distance between
mounting centres (all in mm)


There are 3 leads that come from the sensor:

  • Red lead should be attached to the +5v supply from the Data Logger Units
  • Black lead should be connected to the ground connection on the Data Logger Units
  • White lead should be connected to an analogue input

A user defined variable can be entered into the analysis software to convert the voltage into an actual displacement if required.
