Gill Sensors & Controls Position sensor with dual functionality

The Blade25 inductive position sensor offers non-contacting position sensing technology in a design that provides both linear and rotary position feedback in a single package. This proprietary inductive sensing technology can monitor the activator’s (target) position in either a straight linear movement or in a curved arc rotary movement as it passes over the sensing element. This versatility makes it suitable for feedback sensing and control in a range of applications. The two-piece sensor measures either ±45° of rotary movement or ±12.5 mm of linear displacement without contact between the sensing element and the small metal target.
