Part no.: M112
• ATEX/IECEx approved for mining
• Sensor Mounting: 1/2" UNF ThreadSpring loaded plunger
• Available in any measurement range from 0-5mm to 0-50mm
• Sealed to IP67
The intrinsically safe M112 is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour, dust atmospheres and mining environments. It is designed for gauge head positioning in industrial and scientific applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas. The M112, like all Positek sensors, 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 0-50mm and with full EMC protection built in.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is very robust, the body and plunger being made of stainless steel for long service life and environmental resistance.
The plunger is spring loaded with a domed end. The M112 is easy to install with a long ½ inch UNF mounting thread and is supplied with two lock nuts for positioning. Environmental sealing is to IP67.
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.
The GS liquid level software is an excellent resource for people using sensors to measure fuel, chemicals, or even waste. One of the best features of the Gill Liquid Level Sensors is its compatibility with the GS Level software. The GS Level software makes it easy for the end-user or integrator to change the setting […]
Introduction to Intrinsically Safe Sensors
Intrinsically safe sensors and systems are used to provide a safe operating environment for personnel and equipment. They do this by restricting the electrical energy transmitted into a hazardous area.
SSI hardware is fairly simple. Just use any RS-422 transceiver to generate the differential signals from/to the microcontroller port pins. Keep reading to learn about the different implementations of SSI hardware.
Miniature Kit Encoders Ensure High Performance in Maxon Micromotors
With the increasing sophistication of electronic controls for mechanical systems, there is more demand for durable, accurate and easy to use displacement sensors. As automation becomes more common there is also an increasing sensitivity to price. Customers also want sensors that can be easily connected and mechanically integrated.
