Robust Intrinsically Safe Linear Position Sensor



Penn Valley, PA, August 3, 2006 - Everight Precision Technologies Corporation, the North American distributor for British sensor manufacturer Positek, Ltd., introduces Positek’s “X” line of intrinsically safe linear variable inductive transducer position sensors for use in oil and gas exploration, production, and transportation, heavy equipment, and factory automation applications.  ATEX certified to EEX ia IIC TA standards (TA = -40º to +80 ºC), equivalent to US Class 1, Div 1, Groups B, C, D, Positek’s intrinsically safe position sensors comprise the broadest range of macro position sensor forms available in the market today.  The line includes the X111, the world’s most robust intrinsically safe linear position/displacement sensor in the 50 – 800mm measurement range.  Built and calibrated for the user’s measurement range, the X111 is highly linear and repeatable, and is offered in a variety of mounting configurations.  Positek X Series sensors, used as a system with Positek BX Series galvanic barriers, provide either a 0.5 – 9.5V DC or a 4-20mA analog output signal that represents absolute position available immediately on power up.


With no wearing contacts, Positek inductive transducers are extremely reliable over very long time periods (virtual infinite life) and maintain output stability over a wide temperature range.  X Series sensors feature rugged stainless steel bodies sealing between IP65 and IP68, depending upon selected cable or connector options.  Full EMC protection is built in.
