The P117  is is very space efficient and compact with its 19mm body diameter. Affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The repeatability, overall performance and stability are excellent over a large temperature range. The P117 is housed within a stainless steel body tube and has a 3/8" stainless steel push rod.

Various mounting options are available including M5 male stud and M5 rod eye bearing. The push rod can be supplied free or captive with M5 male thread or M5 rod eye. Like all Positek products the P117 provides a linear output proportional to the displacement. Each unit is supplied calibrated to the customers exact requirement, from 0-5mm to 0-350mm and with full EMC protection built in. For example, if your application requires 3/4" (19 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length. The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 19 mm.
The P117 is sealed to IP67 . The sensor has fully integrated EMC protection.
