Rugged and reliable sensing solutionsGill Sensors is one of the UK's leading and most innovative designer, manufacturer and supplier of both standard and customised induction position sensors. Gill's latest range of Blade sensors answers the marketplace's need for robust, versatile and cost-effective sensors for demanding industrial applications.
The Blade range features Gill's patented induction technology and represents a significant breakthrough in position sensing. Being solid state sensors, they have no moving parts and so have an unlimited mechanical life, offering a fit and forget solution in many applications where access can be difficult.
Already installed in numerous applications including pedal, pneumatics and manufacturing machinery, the sensors provide highly accurate linear, angular and rotary measurement across a range of measurement zones.
The Blade range is IP67 protected and unaffected by dirt, water, oil ingress and other harsh chemicals and are able to work in temperatures from -40ºC to well-over 100ºC. With the sensors able to withstand the harsh and uncompromising industrial environments, the costly downtime experience with other sensor types is significantly reduced.
Gill's latest product, the Blade 20, offers 12-bit resolution capable of data sampling at speeds up to 15 KHz. Blade20 is configurable to a 20mm measurement zone, capable of monitoring 20mm linear and shallow-arc movement. The new sensor is available with 0.5-4.5v and 0.5-10v outputs and a new 4-20mA variant will be launched later this year.
All of the inductive sensors within the Blade family are cost -effective solutions to a range of demanding automotive applications which require long term reliability and high accuracy measurement.
