ILPS-27 Series Industrial Duty LVIT Linear Position Sensor for Factory Automation by Harold G. Schaevitz Industries LLC

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, April 17, 2018Harold G. Schaevitz Industries LLC (HGSI) has expanded its sensor product offering by adding a line of ILPS-27 Series Inductive Linear Position Sensors using LVIT Technology; contactless devices 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, superior performance, and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, ILPS-27 sensors are ideal for both industrial testing laboratories and OEM applications. 

ILPS-27 Features:

  • Contactless operation prevents wear out from dither or cycling
  • 10 Ranges from 50 to 450 mm (2 to 18 inches)
  • Excellent stroke-to-length ratio
  • 27 mm (1.05 inch) diameter anodized aluminum housing sealed to IP-67
  • Radial cable exit version comes with swivel rod eye ends
  • Axial termination versions with either M-12 connector or cable

Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the ILPS-27 series offer a choice of four analog outputs and all include HGSI's proprietary SenSet™ field recalibration feature.

The ILPS series also includes the ILPS-19 series for applications where a shorter length and smaller diameter body is required and the spring loaded ILPS-18S for applications where the probe cannot be hard fixed to the measurand. Technical data sheets and additional information can be found at
