Part no.: X603
• Single axis
• Up to 160°
• Voltage or Current interface
The intrinsically safe X603 tilt sensor is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. 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 X603, 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 characteristic with angle of deflection. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. Electrical connections to the sensor are made via an industrial standard 4-pin M12 connector, with limited rotational capability to facilitate cable routing.
The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and anodised aluminium mounting flange. The flange has two 4.5mm by 30 degree wide slots on a 48mm pitch to simplify mounting and position adjustment. 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.
Micronor MR330 series is the only 100% Passive Fiber Optic Absolute Position Sensor System available on the market today. The innovative design is based on an all-optical passive sensor and remote interrogator module interconnected by an industry-standard multimode fiber optic link.
Despite their perceived simplicity, potentiometers can still be an appropriate option in today’s ever-complicated automation industry. Fundamentally a variable resistor, modern potentiometers also offer more traditional outputs such as voltage and current which are common to more expensive sensors.
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…
