About the M117 Linear Inductive Position Sensor
The M117 is designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications 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.
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 350mm and with full EMC protection built in.
The unit is very compact and space-efficient with a small 19mm diameter body.
The sensor is very robust, the body and push rod being made of stainless steel. The sensor is easy to install with mounting options including M5 male stud and M5 rod eye bearing. The push rod can be supplied free or captive, with male M5 thread or M5 rod eye. Environmental sealing is to IP67.
