P106 Internally Mounted Cylinder Sensor With External Electronics.

Position feedback for industrial and scientific applications


Available in any travel from 5mm to 800mm.


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 particuarly important. It is particuarly 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 entite 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 5mm to 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 flouropolymer 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 dependant on cable or connector options and with integrated full EMC protection.
