The P115 LIPS® (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) is a heavy-duty version of the P114 sensor with a stronger 12.7mm push rod, recommended for applications 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 would be completely submerged during normal operation, up to a pressure of 10Bar. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length. Like all Positek sensors, the P115 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each sensor is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 50 to 600mm 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 female M8 thread, or an M8 stainless steel rod eye. The P115 also offers a wide range of mechanical and electrical options, environmental sealing is to IP68 10Bar.
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:
