Part no.: P100
• Body Diameter: 35mm
• Sensor Mounting: In-Cylinder Mounting
• Any stroke from 0-5mm to 0-800mm (e.g. 305mm)
• IP65 (connector) / IP67 (cable)
The P100 sensor is an affordable, durable, high accuracy linear position sensor specifically designed for use in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders where long life and cost are important. The P100 linear sensor is particularly suitable for OEM customers who require good performance in hard environments such as industrial machinery.
Performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a large temperature range.This compact and particularly space efficient sensor is responsive along almost its entire length.
As with all of Positek’s sensors the customer can specify the exact length that they require to measure and Positek will manufacture the unit specifically for that length and supply the unit calibrated.
The P100 sensor is available with any length of electrical travel ranging anywhere from 0-5mm to 0-800mm. For example, if your application requires 10″” (254 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length. The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 254 mm. The P100 is housed inside a stainless steel body and the probe coil is encased within a flouropolymer sheath, both of which offer good protection for this rugged sensor.
The sensor is easily installed in the cylinder using one of the thread options. The P100 is sealed to IP65 or IP67 depending on the selected cable or connector options.
The sensor has integrated EMC protection to EN 61000-6-2, EN 61000-6-3.
The P100 is well suited for high pressure hydraulic environments up to 350 bar and is rated over the temperature range -40°C to 125°C or -20° to +85° depending on the electronics option.

Intrinsically safe (IS) sensors are designed to operate safely in hazardous areas where there is a risk of explosion. IS sensors limit the amount of electrical and thermal energy that can be released in the event of a fault, to a level below that which is capable of igniting flammable gases, vapors, or dust.
POSITAL’s product finder has generated full specification custom datasheets for years. Rather than having to guess on specifications from a confusing product configurator, POSITAL provides part specific datasheets in real time for the given part number of interest.
Despite their perceived simplicity, potentiometers can still be an appropriate option in today’s ever-complicated automation industry. Fundamentally a variable resistor, modern potentiometers also offer more traditional outputs such as voltage and current which are common to more expensive sensors.
Industrial Ethernet protocols are playing a growing role in automation, as they offer a number of advantages over traditional fieldbus protocols such as CANopen and PROFIBUS. Industrial Ethernet protocols are based on standard Ethernet technology, which provides a number of benefits, including:
