The P100 sensor is an affordable, durable, high accuracy linear position sensors specifically designed for use in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders where long life and cost are important. The P100 linear sensor is particuarly suitable for OEM customers who require good performance in hard environments such as industrial machinery.
Performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a large temperature range.This compact and particuarly space efficient sensor is responsive along almost its entire length.
As with all of Positek’s sensors the cutomer can specify the exact length that they require to measure and Positek will manufacture the unit specifically for that length and supply the unit calibrated. The P100 sensor is available with any length of electrical travel ranging anywhere from 20mm to 600mm. For example, if your application requires 10″ (254 mm) measurement then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this length. The mechanical length and calibration will be set up for 254 mm. The P100 is housed inside a stainless steel body and the probe coil is encased within a flouropolymer sheath, both of which offer good protection for this rugged sensor.
The sensor is easily installed in the cylinder using one of the thread options. The P100 is sealed to IP65 or IP67 depending on the selected cable or connector options.
The sensor has integrated EMC protection to EN 61000-6-2, EN 61000-6-3.
The P100 is well suilted for high pressure hydraulic environments up to 350 bar and is rated over the temperature range -40°C to 125°C or -20° to 85° depending on the electronics option.
Intrinsically Safe systems provide a safe operating environment for personnel and equipment. Intrinsic Safety (IS) is based on the principle of restricting the electrical energy transmitted into a hazardous area, thereby ensuring that any sparks or heated surfaces that may occur as a result of electrical failures are insufficient to cause ignition. The threat of an explosion is eliminated.
Positek’s ATEX and IECEx approved Intrinsically Safe sensors can be used in hazardous environments when connected to our approved galvanically isolated amplifier. Positek offers Intrinsically Safe sensors for the following three hazard classifications:
Positek sensors are now available in the EX07 versions which are ATEX and IECEx
Qualified to Intrinsic Safety Specification
The sensors must be used with a galvanically isolated three port amplifier
designed to supply the sensor with a nominal 5V and to transmit the buffered
output to a safe area.
The Positek X005 Galvanic Isolation Amplifier designed specifically for use with Positek Intrinsically safe sensor range is available in the following output options:
Body Length (to seal face)
Probe Length (from seal face)
Target Tube Length
