The PMI inductive positioning system is used to detect linear position and measure rotation angle. The positioning system is reliable in dusty and dirty environments and under extreme temperature fluctuations. A patented configuration and wiring of multiple coils within a single sensor and intelligent evaluation enable maximum precision and efficiency. Depending on application requirements, the measuring range and several switch points or windows can be defined in one sensor. Equipped with IO-Link, PMI inductive positioning systems pave the way for Industry 4.0 applications.
