The intrinsically safe X125 sealed to IP68 350bar (5000psi, 3500m), is an ATEX and IECEx gas approved linear sensor . With a strong 12.6mm push rod it is recommended for applications where high pressure sealing is required or where vibration is an issue or there is a need for longer travel sensors are to be mounted horizontally between rod eyes. It remains an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for applications where the sensor requires IP68 sealing up to a pressure of 350Bar. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length. Like all Positek sensors, the X125 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 0-800mm and with full EMC protection built in.
The sensor is very robust, the body and push rod being made of stainless steel for long service life and environmental resistance.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor is easy to install with mounting options including stainless steel M8 rod eye bearings and body clamps. The push rod can be supplied free or captive, with M8 thread, or an M8 stainless steel rod eye. The X125 also offers a wide range of mechanical and electrical 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.
