M130

Part no.: M130

Key Features

• ATEX/IECEx approved for mining

• Sensor Mounting: In-cylinder

• Available in any measurement range from 0-400mm to 0-1485mm

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

The intrinsically safe M130 is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour, dust atmospheres and mining environments. 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 M130 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-400mm to 0-1485mm 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 (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.

Encoder Technology Overview

Rotary encoders are used in a variety of applications to provide feedback on position, speed, direction, or angle. There are several different encoder types…

Why Holistic Encoders are More Accurate

All absolute rotary encoders have a rotor which is attached to the rotating shaft and a stator which is attached to the housing holding the shaft. The interaction of these two components produces a measure of the shafts rotational angle. The most important parameters of absolute rotary sensors are resolution, accuracy and tolerance to misalignment of the rotational axes.

How-to: 2 Point Operation of an Open Collector Switch Output

In this example, the switch point has been set to ‘Full Alarm’. By setting the switch point to 90% with an 80% hysteresis, the switch will come on at 90% and switch off at 10%.

Absolute Rotary Encoders Available with BiSS-C Interface

POSITAL’s magnetic absolute rotary encoders are now available with the BiSS-C interface. These products are available in a wide range of mechanical configurations include a 36mm…
