The sensors provide a linear output characteristic with displacement which can be proportional to the supply voltage. Its DC analogue output signal represents absolute position and is available immediately on power up.

The sensors have major advantages over LVDT's and other similar sensors. They are more compact, more accurate, robust and need no special sensitive magnetic components or magnets which attract debris.

The micro electronic interface which produces the output signal is combined into a single custom ASIC with the minimum of additional surface mount components. The interface, which has a high level of EMC protection built in, needs a DC supply and a range of electrical I/O options are available to suit customer requirements

The sensors use Positek's novel inductive PIPS® technology, that combines the best in fundamental inductive principles with advanced micro electronic integrated circuit technology.
