Linear touchless position sensor.

Our linear sensors create immunity to magnet´s misalignment that negatively impacts operational performance and results in labour intensive maintenance programmes. It complements our  PS2P-CON and PS2P-ARC series of air-gap non-contact angular rotary position sensors. 


A magnet is attached to moving parts of kit, such  hydraulic/pneumatic controls & gear selector, and the electronics module to the chassis (or viceversa).

As absolute sensors, they will not loose the values even after a power failure.

All Piher touchless sensors are compact, sealed,  low-profile, yet extremely rugged and can be custom-engineered to fit customers´ specifications and existing mechanical assemblies.

Main features

•  True touchless operation: free from wear and tear.
•  Absolute position feedback.
•  Low profile & robust magnetic design that easily adapts to your design.
•  Selectable output: analogue (ratiometric), PWM, SPI.
•  Programmable measuring range: up to 25mm.
•  Resolution: analogue & PWM: 12 bits / SPI: 14 bits.
•  Linearity: +/-1% absolute (+/-0.5% upon request).
•  Over voltage protection up to 10V /  Reverse voltage protection up to -10V /  Supply voltage 7-15V
•  Programmable linear transfer characteristic
(some positive slopes & one negative slope can be programmed in the same transfer characteristic; up to 4 programmable points)
•  Unlimited  mechanical life.
•  High vertical & lateral tolerance to magnet misalignment.
•  Simple, redundant and full redundant versions available. 
•  Sealed for harsh environments.
•  Operating temperature: -40ºC to +125ºC
•  Self-diagnostic features.
