Part no.: P111
• Body Diameter: 35mm
• Sensor Mounting: M8 Rod Eyes, Body Clamps or M8 ThreadsSpring loaded pushrod option available
• Available in any measurement range from 0-5mm to 0-800mm
• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option
The P111 is a rugged, heavy duty version of the P101 with a significantly stonger 1/2″” pushrod. The P111 is particuarly well suited to applications where vibration is an issue or where the requirement is for a long travel sensor, horizontaly mounted and supported by rod eyes.
It remains an affordable, durable, high accuracy linear sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The highly compact and space efficient unit is responsive along almost all of its length.
Like all Positek sensors the P111 provides a linear output that is proportional to the displacement. Each unit is supplied calibrated to the exact travel required by the customer, the P111 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.
The sensor is very robust, the body and push rod are made from stainless steel for good environmental resistance and service life. This product is well suited to OEM customers looking for good sensor performance in arduous applications such as industrial machinery where cost is important. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range.
The sensor is easy to install with mounting options that include M8 rod eye bearings and body clamps. The push rod is normally supplied captive but can be supplied free if required. The push rod is supplied with either; M8 rod end, M8 female thread or with a dome end.
The P111 is sealed to either IP65/IP67 depending on which connector/cable option. The sensor has 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.

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.
Many applications require linear motion to be monitored for system control or to ensure safety. With lengths ranging from 1 m to 30m (3’ to 98’), LINARIX linear sensors are available in many configurations to meet an application’s requirements. Options include a wide variety of outputs (including analog, fieldbus and Ethernet variants), heavy duty housings and compact design.
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 […]

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.
Positek’s portfolio includes a range of high-accuracy linear sensors specifically designed for use in submersible applications. Made from marine grade stainless steel and offering the reliability that is not possible from a submersible LVDT or linear potentiometer, our sensors have served a host of different industries such as wastewater and offshore oil drilling. Another use […]
