Part no.: P130
• Body Diameter: 35mm
• Sensor Mounting: In-cylinder
• Available in any measurement range from 0-400mm to 0-1485mm
• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option
The P130 sensor is an affordable, durable, high accuracy long stroke linear position sensor specifically designed for use in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders where long life and cost are important. The P130 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 P130 sensor is available with any length of electrical travel ranging anywhere from 0-400mm to 0-1485mm. For example, if your application requires 40″” (1016 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length. The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 1016 mm. The P130 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 P130 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 P130 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.
Positek’s portfolio includes a range of high-accuracy linear sensors specifically designed for use in submersible applications. Made from marine grade stainless steel and offering the reliability that is not possible from a submersible LVDT or linear potentiometer, our sensors have served a host of different industries such as wastewater and offshore oil drilling.

MEMS Inclinometer Specifications
Inclinometers, also called tilt sensors, clinometers, or slope sensors, are designed to measure the angle of an object with respect to the force of gravity. These tilt or level meters determine the pitch and/or roll angle and output these values via the appropriate electrical interface.
How To: Use an Open Collector Output
All new Gill level sensors come with a secondary output function which operates as a high or low level switch. So what is it and how do I use an Open Collector switch output?
