Positek M500

Part no.: Positek M500

Key Features

• ATEX approved for mining

• 0.5-9.5V or 4-20mA outputs

• ATEX variants of P502 & P505 available

• Up to 160 deg range

The intrinsically safe M500 is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour, dust atmospheres and mining environments.

It is designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.

The M500, like all Positek sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 16 and 160 degrees and with full EMC protection built in. The sensor provides a linear output proportional with angle of rotation. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The M500 has long service life and environmental resistance with a rugged stainless steel body, shaft, flange or servo mount. The flange or servo mounting options make the sensor easy to install, it also offers a 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 (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.
