M100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer-sheathed probe and stainless steel target tube

About the M100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

The M100 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.

The incorperated electronics system is ATEX / IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour, dust atmospheres and mining environments.

The unit is highly 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 0-5mm to 0-800mm and with full EMC protection built in.

The sensor is very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymersheathed probe with a stainless steel target tube. The sensor is easy to install in cylinders and has a range of mechanical options. Environmental sealing is to IP67.
