Gill Sensors & Controls' Blade25 Inductive Position Sensor has a non-contacting position sensing technology that provides both linear and rotary position feedback. The proprietary inductive sensing technology can monitor the activator's position in either a straight linear movement or in a curved 'arc' rotary movement as it passes over the sensing element. The Blade25 is a two-piece sensor that measures either +/-45-deg of rotary movement or +/- 12.5mm of linear displacement. It is designed to have no contact between the sensing element and the small metal 'target', which acts as the activator and attaches to the moving element in the assembly. The activator has an air gap between the second part of the sensor, which features a solid-state sealed electronics package that is surrounded by the activator.

The Blade25 Sensor is available with analog, pulse width modulation, (PWM) or serial output and is designed to meet stringent OEM environmental requirements with an IP67 rating. Alternately, OEM engineers can choose to integrate the activator feature into their designs for either linear stroke applications, or at the end of shafts for rotary applications. Gill engineers are available for consultation for incorporating this feature into their design.

The Blade25 is ideally suited to extremely dirty and contaminated environments, in areas where strong magnetic fields are present, and in complex mechanical assemblies such as applications include marine control, material handling, industrial vehicle foot brake and throttle control, food processing, and packaging automation.
