P106

Part no.: P106

Key Features

• Probe Head Diameter: 20mmElectronics Module: 35mm

• Sensor Mounting: In-cylinder

• Available in any measurement range from 0-5mm to 0-800mm

• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option

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 particularly important. It is particularly 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 entire 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 0-5mm to 0-800mm, 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 fluoropolymer 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 dependent on cable or connector options and with integrated full EMC protection.

Torque Measurement with Angle Sensors

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.

MR330 System Series

Micronor MR330 series is the only 100% Passive Fiber Optic Absolute Position Sensor System available on the market today. The innovative design is based on an all-optical passive sensor and remote interrogator module interconnected by an industry-standard multimode fiber optic link.

Chips, Chips & Chips

What semiconductors, snacking and gambling all have in common: Encoders!

There has been a lot of talk lately around the global ‘chip’ shortage. Even social media last month was filled with cartoons of engineers asking Santa for semiconductors for Christmas. Rotary encoders such as the DS-130 by Netzer Precision are an important part of this ‘chip’ production. Accuracies exceeding 0.004 degrees, 21 bit resolution and a 90mm ID ensure that component placement can be done accurately and consistently.

Redundant Encoder Options

While most modern rotary encoders rely on non-contact sensing technologies and have high MTBF specifications, in critical applications it is still common to have redundant sensors required. When selecting a solution, a number of different criteria need to be considered and fortunately different solutions exist, making the task less daunting. Redundancy One of the first […]
