X112 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Easy to install with a long ½ inch UNF mounting thread

About the X112 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our X112 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) is ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. It is designed for gauge head positioning in industrial and scientific applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.

The X112 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each sensor is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 5mm to 50mm and with full EMC protection built in. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is very robust, the body and plunger being made of stainless steel for long service life and environmental resistance. The plunger is spring loaded with a domed end. The X112 is easy to install with a long ½ inch UNF mounting thread and is supplied with two lock nuts for positioning. Environmental sealing is to IP67.
