Component Distributors Inc. (CDI) and Alliance Sensors Group (ASG) are proud to announce a North American distribution partnership. Alliance Sensors Group has developed a new line of linear position sensors for long stroke and hydraulic/pneumatic cylinder applications. Linear Variable Inductive Transducers aka "LVITs" are contactless devices that require no magnet and instead use the ram of the cylinders as the sensing element. They come in various form factors and can be port mounted (MR-7, MHP-7, and SS-7 series) or embedded (ME-7 series) into the cylinder. These LVITs are designed andRead More
