E111

Part no.: E111

Key Features

• ATEX/IECEx approved to: Ex II 1G : Ex ia IIC T4 GA (Ta = -40°C to +80°C)

• Sensor Mounting: M8 Rod Eyes, Body Clamps or M8 ThreadsSpring loaded pushrod option available

• Available in any measurement range from 0-5mm to 0-800mm

• Sealed to IP65/67 depending on connector/cable option

The intrinsically safe E111 is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour and dust atmospheres. This heavy-duty version of the E101 sensor with a stronger 12.6mm push rod, recommended for applications where vibration is an issue or there is a need for longer travel sensors, mounted horizontally, and supported between rod eyes. It remains an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length. Like all Positek sensors, the E111 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each sensor is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-5mm to 0-800mm and with full EMC protection built in.

The sensor is very robust, the body and push rod being made of stainless steel for long service life and environmental resistance. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is easy to install with mounting options including M8 rod eye bearings and body clamps. The push rod can be supplied free or captive, with female M8 thread, an M8 rod eye, or dome end, Captive push rods can be sprung loaded, in either direction, on sensors up to 300mm of travel. Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67, depending on selected cable or connector options.

Positek intrinsically safe sensors are designed to be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier . Approved galvanic isolation amplifiers (X005) are available from Positek; there is a choice of 0.5-9.5V or 4-20mA transmission outputs.

The sensor can be installed with a cable length up to 1km between the sensor and the amplifier.

‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ – The Gill Blade Sensor

Not all sensors live easy lives. While some will go on to do noble things such as aiding in medical surgery robotics or will find lives in cutting-edge cobots such as Boston Dynamic’s spot, others will live simpler, yet equally important lives, this article is dedicated to one of those unsung heroes, the Gill Blade Sensor.

Osico Oil-Mon: The Ultimate Oil Quality Sensor for Real-Time Monitoring

In the world of industrial machinery and high-tech equipment, maintaining optimal lubrication is not just a matter of efficiency—it’s a necessity for reliability and longevity. Particle contamination, water intrusion, and oxidation can transform lube oil from a machine’s lifeblood into its most insidious foe. While periodic lab analyses provide snapshots of oil health, imagine the possibilities if these critical parameters could be monitored continuously, in real time.

Intrinsically Safe Absolute Rotary Encoders

In the most hazardous environments, where an explosive atmosphere consisting of flammable gas or vapor is regularly present and a sensor fault cannot be risked, Intrinsically Safe (IS) sensors may be the best sensing option. Generally, these sensors are paired with a barrier which limits the amount of electrical and thermal energy that can enter the Hazardous Area to an amount that is so small that even in the situation of a sensor fault, there is not enough energy to cause an ignition.
