Part no.: P118
• Body Diameter: 19mm
• Sensor Mounting: Flange or body clampsSpring loaded pushrod option available
• Available in any measurement range from 0-2mm to 0-50mm(for 51-100mm range see P138)
• Sealed to IP67
The P118 with its compact 19 mm diameter stainless steel body is an affordable, durable, accurate position sensor designed for a wide range of industrial applications. It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance in situations where a small diameter, 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 Positek® sensors provides a linear output proportional to displacement.
Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-2mm to 0-50mm and with full EMC protection built in.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is easy to install and set up. Mounting options include body clamps or a stainless steel mounting flange with two 3.2 mm by 30 degree wide slots on a 25 mm pitch. The stainless steel plunger can be supplied free or captive, with female M4 thread, or spring-loaded with a ball end. The P118 also offers a range of mechanical options, environmental sealing is to IP67.
Rotary encoders are used in a variety of applications to provide feedback on position, speed, direction, or angle. There are several different encoder types…
Introduction to Intrinsically Safe Sensors
Intrinsically safe sensors and systems are used to provide a safe operating environment for personnel and equipment. They do this by restricting the electrical energy transmitted into a hazardous area.
Torque Measurement with Angle Sensors
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.
Many applications require linear motion to be monitored for system control or to ensure safety. With lengths ranging from 1 m to 30m (3’ to 98’), LINARIX linear sensors are available in many configurations to meet an application’s requirements. Options include a wide variety of outputs (including analog, fieldbus and Ethernet variants), heavy duty housings and compact design.
