Positek S520

Part no.: Positek S520

Key Features

• Subsea encoder to 350Bar, 5000 psi

• Analog voltage and current outputs

• Up to 0.1% linearity

• Measure up to 100 deg range

The 350bar S520 rotary sensor is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy sensor designed for Marine and Subsea feedback applications.

The S520, like all Positek® sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 15 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.

It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications such as subsea ROVs where long term reliability and excellent sealing is important.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range.

The S520 has long service life and environmental resistance with a rugged 316 stainless steel body and shaft, The flange mounting makes the sensor easy to install. There are a range of electrical options.
Environmental sealing is to IP68 350Bar, 3500 msw, 5000 psi.

Hydraulic Cylinder Position Sensor Applications

Positek supplies a range of hydraulic cylinder position sensors that offer high-precision position monitoring in harsh environments such as industrial machinery…

SSI Encoder

Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications between a master (i.g. controller) and a slave (i.g. sensor).

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.

UAV Tank Level Measurement

For maximum endurance and payload transportation capacity many UAV manufacturers turn to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered flight. Electric propulsion has its place, but for maximum energy density batteries are not currently at the level of modern fossil fuels.
