The LIPS P116 linear displacement transducer is a simple to integrate, high performance, compact and economical solution for the instrumentation of hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders.

With its compact dimensions (sensor length = stroke + 30mm only), numerous adaptation possibilities (adjustable stroke per mm from 5 to 600mm, cylinder mounting by flange or thread) and its integrated electronics (voltage or current output), the installation can be done on new cylinders as well as in retrofit.

More dynamic than the LVDT (bandwidth: 0-10 kHz), and more robust than the potentiometric (MTBF > 350,000 hours), the P116 can be installed in the cylinder even in the presence of fluids (IP68 waterproof as an option), operating temperature : -40 to 125°C). The analog output signal is linear with the absolute position (non-linearity: < ± 0.25mm for 100mm displacement, optionally reduced to ± 0.1mm)

Mounting and measuring principle

The moving part consists of a tube and a magnetized ring. The displacement is without contact between the fixed part and the moving part allowing a very high number of cycles (MTBF > 350 000 hours). The P116 is directly screwed on the head of the cylinder, the sealing of the cylinder is ensured by an adapted seal. The measurement signal and the power supply are carried by a cable or a connector.

The sensor is powered by a DC voltage, and incorporates conditioning electronics for a voltage or current output signal compatible with any analog acquisition system:

Output Power supply
0.5V to 4.5V DC ratiometric (default) +5V DC nom. ±0.5V
0.5V-4.5V DC +9-28V DC nom. 24V
0.5-9.5V DC +13-28V DC nom 24V
4-20mA +13-28V DC nom 24V

2 potentiometers allow fine adjustment of zero and gain.


The LIPS P116 sensor is recommended for:

  • Displacement measurement of pneumatic cylinders
  • Cylinder position
  • Displacement control
  • Position monitoring of hydraulic cylinders
  • Actuators on construction equipment
