• Stroke lengths available from 25 to 200 mm (1 to 8 inches)
• Tested to over 110 million cycles
• Rod End Joints for simple mounting
• Environmental rating of IP67 (Dust tight, Water immersion to 1 meter)
• 0.75" (19 mm) diameter
• A more robust alternative to Linear Potentiometers


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

The Sensor Connection ILPS-19 series 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-19 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.

Rod End Joint thru-holes are 5 mm in diameter.
