Part no.: P133
• Body Diameter: 35mm
• Sensor Mounting: Flange or body clampsSpring loaded pushrod option available
• Available in any measurement range from 0-51mm to 0-100mm(for 2-50mm range see P103)
• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option
The P133 is a durable, affordable, high accuracy short stroke linear inductive position sensor designed for use in industrial and scientific applications.
The P133 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 3″” (76 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length.The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 76mm. The P133 is available with any travel from 0-51mm to 0-100mm.
The overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and plunger.
The P133 sensor is particuarly easy to install with either flanged housing or body clamps. The plunger can be supplied captive or free with either female M4 thread or spring loaded with dome end. The P133 is available with a wide range of electrical inputs/outputs, sealing up to IP65/IP67 dependant 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.
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.
In this example, the switch point has been set to ‘Full Alarm’. By setting the switch point to 90% with an 80% hysteresis, the switch will come on at 90% and switch off at 10%.
SSI hardware is fairly simple. Just use any RS-422 transceiver to generate the differential signals from/to the microcontroller port pins. Keep reading to learn about the different implementations of SSI hardware.
