G106 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Responsive along almost its entire length

About the G106 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

The G106 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 in hazardous areas.

The unit is compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. It provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 5mm to 800mm and with full EMC protection built in.

The G106 is very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymersheathed probe with a stainless steel target tube. The probe and target are easy to install, as is the electronics module

Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected options.
