HGSI adds line of ILPS-19 inductive linear position sensors

April 17, 2018

Bloomfield Hills, MI. Harold G. Schaevitz Industries LLC (HGSI) has expanded its sensor product offering by adding a line of ILPS-19 Series inductive linear position sensors using LVIT technology. The contactless devices are designed for factory automation and a variety of industrial or commercial applications such as motor sport vehicles, automotive testing, solar-cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brake position, and packaging equipment. With their compact design, performance, and stroke-to-length ratio, ILPS-19 sensors are suitable for both industrial testing laboratories and OEM applications.

Their contactless operation prevents wear-out from dither or cycling. They offer six ranges from 25 to 200 mm (1 to 8 in.) and a 19-mm (0.75-in.) diameter anodized aluminum housing sealed to IP-67. A radial cable exit version comes with swivel rod eye ends. Axial-termination versions offer either an M-12 connector or cable. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the ILPS-19 series offer a choice of four analog outputs and all include HGSI’s proprietary SenSet field recalibration feature.

The ILPS series also includes two larger body versions, the ILPS-27 and ILPS-27L for those applications needing a heavier duty unit, and a spring-loaded version called the ILPS-18S. Technical data sheets and additional information can be found at
