E103 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour and dust atmospheres with a sealing to IP67

About the E103 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

The E103 is designed for a wide range of industrial applications for a wide range of industrial applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance in situations where a shortbodied sensor is required for operation in hazardous areas.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The unit is compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length, and provides a linear output proportional to travel.

The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and plunger. It is easy to install and set up, the stainless steel mounting flange has two 4.5mm by 30 degree slots on a 48mm pitch. The plunger can be supplied free or captive, with female M4 thread, or spring-loaded with a ball end.

It provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 2mm to 50mm and with full EMC protection built in.
