P603 Large Angle Tilt Sensor


Position feedback for industrial and scientific applications
Available in any travel between 15° and 160°


The P603 TIPS® (Tilt Inductive Position Sensor) is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy tilt sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The P603, like all Positek sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 15 and 160 degrees. The sensor provides a linear output characteristic with angle of deflection. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.

It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications such as industrial machinery where cost is important.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. Electrical connections to the sensor are made via an industrial standard 4-pin M12 connector, with limited rotational capability to facilitate cable routing.

The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and anodised aluminium mounting flange. The flange has two 4.5mm by 30 degree wide slots on a 48mm pitch to simplify mounting and position adjustment. The P603 offers a range of electrical options. Sealing is to IP67 and full EMC protection is built in.

Preferences

Positek offers a range of options for its standard sensors.
Each sensor is manufactured to suit each customer's preferences.
If your requirement is outside the options given below,
Positek can modify/ redesign a sensor to suit your specific requirement.
Standard options are available as below:

 

Measurement range:

Factory set to Any angle from ±7.5° to ±80° in increments of 1°
For example, if your application requires 90° measurement
then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this angular range.
The sensor will measure 90° however will still rotate through 360°.
