X103 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Available in any measurement range from  0-2mm to 0-50mm

About the X103 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our intrinsically safe X103 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) incorporates electronics system EX07 which is ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. The X103 is designed for a wide range of industrial applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance in situations where a short-bodied sensor is required for operation in hazardous areas.

The unit is compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length, and provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 2 to 50mm and with full EMC protection built in. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and plunger. It is easy to install and set up, mounting options include flange and body clamps.

The plunger can be supplied free or captive, with female M4 thread, or spring-loaded with a ball end. The X103 also offers a wide range of mechanical options, environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.
