About the P106 Linear Inductive Position Sensor
P106 Internally mounted cylinder sensor with external electronics
How PIPS technology eliminates wear for longer life.
PIPS technology is a major advance in displacement sensor design. PIPS-based displacement transducers have the simplicity of a potentiometer with the life of an LVDT/RVDT.
PIPS technology combines the best in fundamental inductive principles with advanced micro-electronic integrated circuit technology. A PIPS sensor, based on simple inductive coils using ASIC control technology, directly measures absolute position giving a DC analogue output signal. Because there is no contact between moving electrical components, reliability is high and wear is eliminated for an exceptionally long life.
PIPS overcomes the drawbacks of LVDT technology bulky coils, poor length-to-stroke ratio and the need for special magnetic materials. It requires no separate signal conditioning.
Our LIPS range are linear sensors, while RIPS are rotary units and TIPS are for detecting tilt position. Ask us for a full technical explanation of PIPS technology.
