More Cable Length Choices for Piezo Sensors
RJG's '1645' piezoelectric sensor cables are now available in 1.2 meter and 1.6 meter lengths. The 0.2M, 0.4M, 0.6M, 0.8M, and 2M lengths are still offered. Please contact Inside Sales for additional information and pricing.

The Static Pin Advantage
Static pins provide a cost effective, lower maintenance option to flush mount sensors in applications where a moving pin is not available. The key is proper installation and the use of an O-ring to prevent contamination and binding of the pin. O-rings are available for static pins as small as 1 mm.

The screen below shows data comparing a 1 mm static pin with a 3/32” moving pin. Even with such a small pin, very high accuracy is possible. To learn more, contact Mike Groleau at mike.groleau@rjginc.com.
