TURCK's Q-track inductive sensor operation is based on the RLC resistance inductance capacitance principle that incorporate precisely manufactured printed emitter and receiver coil systems. The emitter coils are activated with a high frequency AC field and produce an inductive RLC circuit with the positioning element. The element is inductively coupled with the receiver coils, which are arranged so different voltages are induced in the coils, depending on the position of the actuator. The voltages serve as a measure for the sensor signal. Q-track sensors deliver maximum measuring spans, with minimal blind zone and high resistance to EMI/RFI noise interference. The Q-track sensors available are three housing styles Q14, Q17L and Q25 with measuring lengths from 25mm to 1,000mm. In addition, TURCK offers a rotary QR14 package with 360 degree rotational feedback.
