More About Linear Transducers

There is a wide array of linear position sensors available in the market today. Each type of sensor has a specific application. One of the most commonly used position sensors is linear transducers. What is a Linear Transducer? A linear transducer measures the displacement of an object along a...

Industrial Rotary Sensors

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...

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...
