Positek

G118

Part no.: G118

Key Features

• CSA approved to: Class I, Zone 0

• Sensor Mounting: Flange or body clampsSpring loaded pushrod option available

• Available in any measurement range from 0-2mm to 0-50mm(for 51-100mm range see P138)

• Sealed to IP67

The intrinsically safe G118 is CSA approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. The G118 is designed for a wide range of industrial applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance in situations where a short-bodied sensor is required for operation in hazardous areas. The unit is compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length, and like all Positek® sensors provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-2mm to 0-50mm and with full EMC protection built in. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and plunger. It is easy to install and set up, mounting options include flange and body clamps. The plunger can be supplied free or captive, with female M4 thread, or spring-loaded with a ball end. The G118 also offers a wide range of mechanical options, environmental sealing is to IP67.

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.

Wiegand Effect Energy Harvesting

The “Wiegand effect” was discovered almost fifty years ago and has been used successfully in several specialized applications. However, its full potential for energy harvesting and signal generation has received only limited recognition. With recent enhancements to the energy output from Wiegand devices and the emergence of a new generation of ultra-efficient electronic chips for wireless communications, the technology is showing significant promise, especially in the exciting new area of the Internet of Things (IoT). UBITO, a member of the FRABA Group of technology companies, is leading research and development projects aimed at fulfilling this promise.

NASA- Robonaut 2

Robonaut 2 (R2) is a state-of-the-art, highly dexterous anthropomorphic robot. The robot is designed to work with humans and has the ability to use the same workspace and tools.

The robot joints incorporate dual encoders for position and torque feedback while performing in a dynamic application, vibration, shocks, and wide temperature range.

Facing the Inevitable: Sensor Obsolescence, Mitigation Strategies, and Alternatives

Obsolescence. If its only difficulty was remembering how it is spelled it wouldn’t be so bad. And whether you’re trying to replace a sensor that has failed with age or are a manufacturer who can no longer source an important sensor, obsolescence of an inexpensive sensor can create extremely expensive headache. At Everight Position we help customers to understand the causes of sensor obsolescence, explore mitigation strategies and find alternative solutions.
