LVIT Position Sensors Challenge Linear Pots

The Sensor Connection expands its sensor product offerings with a line of ILPS-19 Series inductive linear position sensors using LVIT technology. Promoted as viable replacements for mechanical potentiometers, the contactless devices are designed for factory automation and a variety of industrial or commercial applications such as motor sport vehicles, automotive testing, solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brake position, and packaging equipment. 


Features include contactless operation, six ranges from 25 mm to 200 mm (1 to 8 in.), a 19-mm (0.75-in,) diameter anodized aluminum housing sealed to IP-67, radial cable exit version comes with swivel rod eye ends, and axial termination versions with either M-12 connectors or cables. Operating from a variety of dc voltages, the ILPS-19 series offer a choice of four analog outputs and all include proprietary SenSet field recalibration feature. The series also includes two larger body versions, the ILPS-27 and ILPS-27L, for those applications needing a heavier duty unit and a spring loaded version called the ILPS-18S.
