E100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

For use in potentially explosive gas/vapour and dust atmospheres

About the E100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

The E100 is designed for demanding hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder position feedback applications where service life, environmental resistance and cost are important and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.

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

The sensor is easy to install in cylinders and has a range of mechanical options

It provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-5mm to 0-800mm and with full EMC protection built in.

Features E100

  • Intrinsically safe for Gas to: Ex II 1G
  • Non-contacting inductive technology to eliminate wear
  • Travel set to customer’s requirement
  • Compact 19 mm diameter body
  • High accuracy and stability
