Cylinder Position Sensors

Why choose a Cylinder Position Sensor Our hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder position sensors have significant advantages over similar sensors; they are more compact and more robust and require no sensitive magnetic components. As with every linear transducer that we manufacture, our cylinder...

Inclinometer and tilt sensor

Not only do our tilt sensors offer an extended cycle-life in comparison to rvdts and other alternatives, they are also manufactured from corrosion-resistant metal, which makes them ideal for marine and outdoor applications. As part of our extensive range of Inclinometer and Tilt Sensors, we also...

Angle Sensors

At Positek we have a range of angle sensors that use our own technology. Our angle sensors have been used in a wide variety of industrial applications, from offshore drilling to crane tilt measurement. Angle Sensors from Positek As a non-contact sensing solution, our angle sensor...

Displacement Transducer

What is a Displacement Transducer? A displacement transducer is a device used to convert the motion of an object or machine into electromagnetic, magnetoelectric, or electrostatic signals. These signals are read and interpreted into data. Our Positek PIPS sensors are a type of displacement...

Submersible Linear Sensors

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 for the submersible linear sensor is as an...

Inclinometer Definition

Inclinometers are extremely common and are often in high demand with new machines, technologies and innovations growing constantly. Because they measure the angle of the chosen concerning gravity, inclinometers are used to help detect inclination, angle, tilt, or orientation. Our inclinometers...
