Part no.: G100
• CSA approved to: Class I, Zone 0
• Sensor Mounting: In-Cylinder Mounting
• Any stroke from 0-5mm to 0-800mm (e.g. 305mm)
• IP65 (connector) / IP67 (cable)
The intrinsically safe G100 is CSA approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. It is designed for demanding hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder position feedback applications where service life, environmental resistance and cost are important and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.
Overall performance, repeat-ability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length. Like all Positek sensors, the G100 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit 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 rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer-sheathed probe and stainless steel target tube. The sensor is easy to install in cylinders and has a wide range of mechanical options. 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 (G005) 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.
While most modern rotary encoders rely on non-contact sensing technologies and have high MTBF specifications, in critical applications it is still common to have redundant sensors required. When selecting a solution, a number of different criteria need to be considered and fortunately different solutions exist, making the task less daunting. Redundancy One of the first […]

Osico Oil-Mon Oil Quality Sensor
Particle Contamination, Water Contamination and Oxidation. Any one of these nuisances can spell disaster for lube oil. Of course, you run a lab oil analysis program so you know periodically what these levels are in a machine. But what if you could monitor these parameters in real time? Osico Oil-Mon is a 4-in-1 oil quality […]
