Position
PTC works with GILL Sensors & Controls to supply a wide range of non-contact position sensors for linear, angular and rotary position measurement.  Gill position sensors are true non-contact devices with a constant air gap between the sensor and the moving target. This ensures that no mechanical wear is experienced through use, providing excellent long-term reliability especially in dusty and dirty environments.
Gill position sensors are fully sealed and most standard products are suitable for submersion in liquids (including automotive fluids and hot oils). The sensors are protected from ingress of moisture and dust and can be designed for jet-wash compatibility.

Gill induction technology is very stable across a wide operating temperature range providing repeatable linear data regardless of the operating conditions. Other non-contact position sensor technologies that require a magnet to calculate position (hall-effect for example) can be susceptible to the changing properties of the magnet at higher temperatures.
