• 0.50" (13 mm) diameter
• A more robust alternative to Linear Potentiometers


LVIT Technology = a longer life-span than a Potentiometer!

HGSI ILPS-13Z series Miniature Linear Variable Inductive Transducer (LVIT) Position Sensor with Rod End Joints are used to monitor and track the linear motion or position of a target. These ruggedized sensors are ideal for use in industrial and laboratory applications including automotive R&D, motorsports, industrial, motion control, medical, military and aerospace.

The inductive coil and spoiler combination is a contactless solution, eliminating the wear and dithering issues commonly experienced with Potentiometer type sensors. The amplifier electronics are contained within the housing, no need for an external signal conditioner.

The ILPS-13Z series sensor is made from industrial duty materials for resistance to dust, water, temperature, shock, and vibration.

The SenSet Field Programmability feature allows for quick and easy recalibration of the units’ zero and full scale electrical output.
