P117 Slim-line Linear Position Sensor.


Position feedback for industrial and scientific applications
Available in any travel from 5mm to 350mm.


The P117 LIPS® (Linear Inductive Position Sensor)is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The Repeatability, overall performance and stability are excellent over a large temperature range.The sensor is very space efficent and compact with its 19mm body diameter. The P117 is housed within a stainless steel body tube and has a 3/8" stainless steel push rod.

Various mounting options are available including M5 male stud and M5 rod eye bearing. The push rod can be supplied free or captive with M5 male thread or M5 rod eye. Like all Positek products the P117 provides a linear output proportional to the displacement. Each unit is supplied calibrated to the customers exact requirement. For example, if your application requires 3/4" (19 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length. The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 19 mm.
The P117 is sealed to IP67 . The sensor has fully integrated EMC protection.
