The inductive position measuring systems (PMI) offers an ideal solution for any industrial positioning task. The system easily accomodates linear movements of a few millimeters to meters, or partial rotary motion to full circle motion. The measuring system consists of the PMI sensor and an actuator made of steel. Traditional benefits of the inductive operation principle include noise immunity, robustness, and resistance to wear. Sensor advantages include built-in diagnostic functions that indicate the loss of the actuator from the measuring or detection zone. With integrated temperature compensation, the inductive position and angle measurement systems are well suited for outdoor and harsh environments.
