P100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

LIPS P100 Cylinder - Linear position sensor

About the P100 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our P100 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for demanding hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder position feedback applications where service life, environmental resistance and cost are important. It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications such as industrial machinery.

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.

It provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 20 to 600mm and with full EMC protection built in.

The sensor is very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer-sheathed probe with the option of either an aluminium or stainless steel target tube.

The sensor is easy to install in cylinders and has a wide range of mechanical and electrical options. Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.
