The ILT Series Linear Position Sensors from our subsidiary Ixthus Instrumentation are a cost-effective choice for precision linear measurement tasks in heavy-duty areas such as construction and agricultural machinery and heavy-duty industrial plants. The rugged and rugged IP67/69K rated sensor has an independent linearity specification of +/- 0.25% (FSO at 20°C) and is supplied in a choice of eleven stroke lengths from 25mm to 600mm. The measurement principle of ILTs non-contact inductive sensor technology offers long life and maximum reliability with an MTBF rated at 360,000 hours. A 35mm diameter anodized aluminum housing provides maximum protection for the sensor electronics with vibration and shock classification specifications of 10g and 40g respectively (IEC-68-2-6 and IEC-68-2-29).

The mechanical and electrical options built into the ILT series make selection and installation easy. Standard rod sensor mounting options include optional steel or plastic 8mm diameter rod ends, alternatively M8 internal threads can be specified at both ends. A choice of four standard electrical output/input options includes 0.5…4.5 VDC from a 24 VDC input as well as a 0.5…4.5 V ratio from a nominal +5 VDC. Other options are 2- and 3-wire options for 4…20mA output from 24 VDC input. The extended operating temperature range for the 2m shielded cable interface option available in the ILT series is -40…100°C with the factored version offering an extended upper limit of up to 125°C. Alternatively, an M12 connector version is available with a temperature range limited from -40°C to +85°C and a general degree of sealing against the environment reduced to IP67.
