The RIPS P500 is an accurate and robust inductive angle sensor for scientific and industrial applications. The angle measurement ranges are from 16° to 160°. Each sensor is calibrated according to the needs of the application (useful range and zero). The sensor is powered by DC voltage, and incorporates conditioning electronics for a voltage or 4-20mA output signal compatible with any analogue acquisition system.

The non-contact, inductive technology offers excellent durability (MTBF > 350,000 hours), which is more robust than an RVDT or potentiometric sensor. Another advantage is the excellent frequency response (> 10 kHz) for high-dynamic control or vibration studies.

The analogue output signal is linear with the absolute position (non-linearity: < ± 0.25° for 100° rotation, optionally reduced to ± 0.1°)


The sensor body is made of stainless steel. The RIPS P500 is mounted by means of a flange. A version for mounting on a servomotor is also available. The use of a flexible coupling is recommended for the shaft connection. The electrical connection is either a connector (IP65) or a cable (IP67). Two potentiometers allow fine adjustment of zero and gain.

Several types of output signals are available :

ATEX version / Intrinsic safety

The RIPS X500 is the ATEX version of the P500. The RIPS X500 is certified ** Intrinsically safe Ex II 1G and Ex ia IIC T4 Ga (Ta= -40°C to 80°C)** . The measurement performance and size are identical. The X500 must be used with an ATEX galvanic barrier, like the X005. The output signal is analogue, type 0.5 - 9.5V or 4-20 mA See RIPS X500 data sheet.
