Assembly positions depend on the design of your application and where the indicator can be installed. Position indicators are assembled at 0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees or 270 degrees. Configure a linear system: With the drylin ® drive technology configurator, you can configure a linear system and find a solution that is tailored to your application. Calculate predicted service life, select a position indicator and receive an estimated delivery time, all in one place. CAD models can also be downloaded here.
