Product description

The Remote Sensor Type 8798 is a digital non-contact position sensor for use on pneumatically actuated modulating actuators. This Remote Sensor is available in two versions; as linear and as rotative position sensor and is used in combination with the Positioner Type 8791/8792 and Process Controller Type 8793 (remote version). The linear Remote Sensor can be combined with our process valves ELEMENT Typ 210X/230X and CLASSIC Type 27XX Series. Whereas the rotative Remote Sensor can be mounted on linear actuators in accordance with NAMUR recommendation (DIN IEC 534-6) or rotary actuators in accordance with VDI/VDE 3845.
