Part no.: P101
• Body Diameter: 35mm
• Sensor Mounting: M5 Rod Eyes, Body Clamps or M5 ThreadsSpring loaded pushrod option available
• Any stroke from 0-5mm to 0-800mm (e.g. 305mm)
• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option
The P101 is a durable, affordable, high accuracy stand alone linear inductive position sensor designed for use in scientific and industrial applications.
Like all Positek sensors the P101 provides a linear output that is proportional to the displacement. The P101 is very compact and offers an excellent stroke to overall length ratio. Each unit is supplied calibrated to the exact travel required by the customer, 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 P101 is available with any travel from 0-5mm to 0-800mm.
The overall performance, repeat-ability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is very robust, manufactured from stainless steel the P101 has a long service life and strong environmental resistance and is particularly suitable for applications that require good sensor performance in harsh environments such as industrial machinery where cost is important.
The P101 is easy to install with either M5 rod eye or body clamps. The push rod can be supplied captive or free with either M5 thread, M5 rod eye or ball end. The rod can be spring loaded if required in either direction on sensors with a stroke length of up to 300mm. The P101 is available with a wide range of electrical inputs/outputs, sealing up to IP65/IP67 dependent on connector/cable options and fully integrated EMC protection.
As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.
For maximum endurance and payload transportation capacity many UAV manufacturers turn to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered flight. Electric propulsion has its place, but for maximum energy density batteries are not currently at the level of modern fossil fuels.
For applications where sudden movements, shocks, and vibrations are likely to be encountered, it is important to have sensors with fast response and a clean signal output. POSITAL’s dynamic inclinometers combine two measurement principles using two different MEMS sensors: a 3D acceleration sensor and a 3D gyroscope.
Rotary encoders are used in a variety of applications to provide feedback on position, speed, direction, or angle. There are several different encoder types…
