An inductive positioning system such as PMI is used to measure linear position as well as rotation angle. Under dusty and dirty conditions as well as extreme temperature fluctuations, the positioning system functions as expected. Multiple coils within the same sensor are patented and wired uniquely to enhance performance and efficiency. One sensor may be able to measure various switch points or windows depending on application requirements. Inductive positioning systems from PMI feature IO-Link, paving the way for Industry 4.0 applications.

F112 series PMI positioning system
The F112 series of PMI positioning systems can monitor and measure 14 mm in the direction of switch points, allowing precise positioning. In addition, this sensor offers new possibilities for space-constrained applications, fully enclosed with an IP67-rated metal housing.
F166 series PMI positioning system
They are ideal for basic applications in tight spaces due to their compact design and rugged metal housing. The tool spindle is one application where these benefits can be fully exploited. Compact design makes it easy to integrate into spindles, and the metal housing resists abrasion and grease, so it runs smoothly.
F110 series PMI Positioning System
Long-range positioning can be reliably performed with the F110 series PMI positioning system.
In the F110 series, lengths range from 210 millimeters to 960 millimeters, making them an ideal solution for heavy machinery construction. In addition, large mechanical tolerances can be handled without affecting the sensor’s precision, thanks to a sensing range of up to 6 mm.
F130 series PMI positioning system
PMI’s F130 series position measurement systems convert angle measurements from 0° to 360° into an analog signal ranging between 4mA and … Twenty milliamps. In addition to valve actuator position detection, it can also be used for other applications.
