Part no.: Positek M500
• 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.
Everight Position is pleased to announce that they have been named an Outstanding Small Business Supplier by Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control
Many applications require linear motion to be monitored for system control or to ensure safety. With lengths ranging from 1 m to 30m (3’ to 98’), LINARIX linear sensors are available in many configurations to meet an application’s requirements. Options include a wide variety of outputs (including analog, fieldbus and Ethernet variants), heavy duty housings and compact design.
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 […]
Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications especially, rotary encoders. It is a point-to-point connection from a master (e.g. PLC, microcontroller or other control systems) to a slave (e.g. the rotary encoder).
