Custom Sensors from Positek

As well as our standard range of position sensors, we are also able to customise products and make them fit customer requirements exactly. This means that there is never a reason to compromise.

We have over 25 years of experience in designing, manufacturing and supplying custom position sensors. Our expertise enables us to customise any sensor within our range and tailor it to your requirements.

Why use a Custom Sensor

Many applications are part of bigger systems or devices, which means that often, a standard component can be used within the system to solve the application. However, sometimes, applications are more bespoke and require a product which is not yet on the market. To ensure that the system functions correctly a custom solution is required.

A custom sensor will ensure that highly accurate measurement is taken, using an â€off the shelf" product in this case would mean that the measurements might not be accurate, therefore compromising the functionality of the system involved.

Customisable Elements of Sensors

The most desired custom feature of a sensor is the size. Very often to fit within an application or to measure a certain length of rotation, a sensor must be a particular size. We also have the ability to make sensors suitable for different environments.

Custom Sensors from Positek

All of our designing and manufacturing takes place onsite in our own facility. Our range of position sensors includes;

  • Linear

  • Rotary

  • Tilt

  • Intrinsically Safe Position Sensors

  • Inclinometers

Our products use our own non contacting technology which gives them very long life and makes them highly reliable. It also makes them versatile; using a single measurement coil with the design of our sensor enables us to easily customise the length of our position sensor while keeping the stroke to length ratio to a minimum.

Our custom design service is free, each project is discussed with our team of design engineers before being manufactured to customer specification. When you buy a custom sensor from Positek, we are able to deliver fast, sometimes in as little as 1-2 working days.

Using custom sensors from Positek ensures that your project has no limitations and allows innovative designs to become reality.
