Positek position sensors need no contact between the moving components
and therefore have a very long life. Positek developed a new technology
that overcame the disadvantages normally associated with
inductive technology (bulkiness, poor length to stroke
ratio and the need for special magnetic materials).
The Positek's PIPS® position sensor is an
inductive based, high performance displacement sensor, which has an
excellent record in the industrial market for providing
good performance, robustness, durability and cost.
The sensor technolgy is very flexible and alows us to package it in a wide range of body types. We can also custom design to match your application. If you require a linear sensor that is not satisfied by our standard range we can custom design the package for you. The same applies for our rotary sensor range and tilt sensors.
The PIPS® sensor technology, utilising Positek's
patented ASIC has three derivatives:
LIPS® linear , RIPS®
rotary and TIPS® tilt position
sensors . Each of these is a totally self-contained unit, allowing
the customer to install and interface it with his control or monitoring
Key features are robustness, accuracy, ease of use and compactness.
Positek's displacement transducers have the simplicity of
a potentiometer with the life of an LVDT/RVDT.
In addition to providing our standard range, Positek excels at designing
a bespoke displacement transducer to meet the customer's specific
need. Click here to email our engineering team.
