The ILPS-45 series inductive, contactless linear position sensors from The Sensor Connection (Bloomfield Hills, MI) use linear variable inductance transducer (LVIT) technology and are specifically designed for measuring applications requiring rugged devices. Suitable for use in automotive, off-road vehicles, civil engineering and industrial applications including cylinder position on off-road vehicles, the ILPS-45 series uses a proprietary inductive technology that allows it to replace traditional DC-LVDTs (linear variable differential transformers) in most applications. According to the company, its simple coil design permits the sensor to be both shorter and more rugged than its DC-LVDT counterpart while operating over a wider temperature range. The series is available with optional mounting flanges, rod eye ends, connector or cable terminations and a captive connecting rod assembly that cannot break loose. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the ILPS-45 series offer a choice of four analog outputs and all include TSC's proprietary SenSet field recalibration feature.
