About the P103 Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our P103 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance in situations where a short-bodied sensor is needed and cost is important.

The unit is compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length, and like all sensors provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 10 to 50mm and with full EMC protection built in.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and plunger. It is easy to install and set up, mounting options include flange and body clamps.

The plunger can be supplied free or captive, with female M4 thread, or spring-loaded with a ball end. The P103 also offers a wide range of mechanical and electrical options, environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.
