P106

Part no.: P106

Key Features

• Probe Head Diameter: 20mmElectronics Module: 35mm

• Sensor Mounting: In-cylinder

• Available in any measurement range from 0-5mm to 0-800mm

• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option

The P106 Inductive Linear Position Sensor is an in cylinder with external electronics. It is a highly accurate, durable and affordable position sensor designed for demanding hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder position feedback applications where environmental resistance, cost and service life are particularly important. It is particularly suited to OEM customers who require good sensor performance where the internal length or diameter is limited.

The repeatability, stability and overall performance are outstanding over a large temperature range. The P106 LIPS is very compact and space efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length.

Like all Positek sensors the P106 provides a linear output that is proportional to the displacement. Each unit is supplied calibrated to the exact travel required by the customer, the P106 is available with any travel 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.

Manufactured from stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer sheathed probe the P106 is rugged, ideal for cylinder based applications. The probe and target are easy to install, as is the external electronics module which has a range of mounting and electrical options. Sealing to IP65 or IP67 dependent on cable or connector options and with integrated full EMC protection.

Redundant Encoder Options

In the world of rotary encoders, modern non-contact sensing technologies and high MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) specifications are standard. However, in critical applications, redundant sensors are still a necessity. When selecting a solution, several criteria need to be considered, and fortunately, various options are available to simplify the task. Understanding Redundancy in Encoders The […]

Why Holistic Encoders are More Accurate

All absolute rotary encoders have a rotor which is attached to the rotating shaft and a stator which is attached to the housing holding the shaft. The interaction of these two components produces a measure of the shafts rotational angle. The most important parameters of absolute rotary sensors are resolution, accuracy and tolerance to misalignment of the rotational axes.

Intrinsically Safe Absolute Rotary Encoders

In the most hazardous environments, where an explosive atmosphere consisting of flammable gas or vapor is regularly present and a sensor fault cannot be risked, Intrinsically Safe (IS) sensors may be the best sensing option. Generally, these sensors are paired with a barrier which limits the amount of electrical and thermal energy that can enter the Hazardous Area to an amount that is so small that even in the situation of a sensor fault, there is not enough energy to cause an ignition.

Chips, Chips & Chips

What semiconductors, snacking and gambling all have in common: Encoders!

There has been a lot of talk lately around the global ‘chip’ shortage. Even social media last month was filled with cartoons of engineers asking Santa for semiconductors for Christmas. Rotary encoders such as the DS-130 by Netzer Precision are an important part of this ‘chip’ production. Accuracies exceeding 0.004 degrees, 21 bit resolution and a 90mm ID ensure that component placement can be done accurately and consistently.
