Distance Sensors

Complete range of sensors for distance and position measurement

Positioning \ Measurement

We offer a large array of sensors for distance and position measurement, where continuous feedback is required. From a few thousandths of an inch or hundreds of inches, these distance and position sensors provide accurate, reliable, non-contact position feedback. They are typically suited for plastic injection, lumber industry, tire & rubber manufacturing, stamping, die casting, and blow molding, robotics/handling, clamping cylinders, packaging, & gripper position sensing.

Linear Position Transducers

  • Very accurate and reliable position control signals
  • No contact, so no wear and tear
  • Stroke lengths range from 2" – 300"

Inductive Distance Sensors

  • Analog output for short range distance measurement of metal targets
  • Achieves non-contact measuring by varying its electrical output
  • Ideal for hostile environments
  • Sn range from 2mm – 60mm

Photoelectric Distance Sensors

  • Analog output for long and short range sensing regardless of target material
  • Non-contact measurement of an object’s absolute position
  • Visible red laser sensor detects multiple targets
  • Sn range from 25mm – 6000mm

Magneto-Inductive Sensor

  • Compact and analog feedback that’s ideal for short and medium applications
  • Stroke lengths range from 10mm – 160mm
  • Non-contact with an absolute analog output and passive position marker

Magnetic Linear/Rotary Encoder System

  • High precision encoder for linear or rotary position feedback with lengths to 48 meters, at 20m/s, and resolution to 1µm
  • Suited for high speed and high accuracy applications
  • Eliminates mechanical wear and signal degradation in unclean environments

Ultrasonic Sensors

  • Analog or discrete outputs for transparent, reflective, or contoured objects in dark, dusty, or humid environments with resolution down to 0.2 mm
  • Ranges vary to 1.5 meters
