Industrial Rotary Sensors

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

Industrial Rotary sensors are used for applications which require monitoring rate of rotation, speed, acceleration, and rotational direction. They are used to convert mechanical rotation into electrical signals which can be processed by various devices.

Offering the accuracy and cycle-life that cannot be matched by a precision potentiometer, our Industrial rotary sensors are 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.  

What makes our Industrial Rotary Sensors different?

Our Industrial rotary sensors are among the most highly reliable on the market, this is largely down to the universal use of our unique, non-contact technology; unlike many other types of rotary sensor, our simple, inductive technology operates without interference or wear.  

Our industrial rotary 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.

Custom Rotary Sensors

Our rotary sensors are manufactured onsite. We also have the ability to customise our designs in our in-house design facility. Contact our engineering team to discuss your requirements. Our design service is free and we have over 25 years experience and expertise in custom designing position sensors.
