Industrial and Scientific Rotary Sensors

As the UK’s leading industrial and scientific position sensor manufacturer, Positek provides sophisticated and reliable solutions for a multitude of applications


Offering the accuracy and cycle-life that cannot be matched by a precision potentiometer, our rotary sensor technology is ideal for high precision angle measurement in challenging industrial environments. Our sensors have served a host of industry sectors, from medical and military to subsea and aerospace, each time delivering unrivalled reliability and an exceptionally low failure rate.  

This is largely down to the universal use of our patented, non-contact technology; unlike many rvdt or rotary potentiometer manufacturers, every high precision position sensor that we manufacture uses our simple, inductive technology and operates without interference or wear.  

Our industrial sensors are also suitable for use in scientific environments; the rotary position sensor is extremely robust, and can stand up to alternative technologies such as the laboratory potentiometer. Made from corrosion resistant materials and offering unparalleled accuracy and performance over a wide temperature range, our industrial position sensor technology is ideal for applications in scientific testing.
