Linear Position Sensors
Our range of non-contact linear position sensors are ideal for linear position measurement applications.
About Linear Position Sensors
Gill linear position sensors use induction technology to sense the position of a metallic object ('activator') mounted to or formed as part of the moving part of the application. As there is no physical contact between the sensor and the moving part the sensor will not deteriorate through use, giving excellent long-term reliability.
Each linear position sensor can be configured to operate over the exact measurement range required, providing optimal measurement resolution for each application.
The Blade25 and Blade60 linear position sensors are capable of monitoring up to 25mm and 60mm respectively. Uniquely, the Dual Cavity Sensor's measurement range is determined only by the size and shape of the activator, with an optimum measurement range of between 30-50mm for linear output characteristics.
If our standard linear position sensor range is not suitable we can develop a bespoke linear position sensor according to your exact specification requirements. We are often able to use our existing electronic platforms with custom mechanical packaging, reducing overall development time and costs. We have vast experience in this area, supplying small batch prototypes right through to OEM volumes.
