Dust Environment Sensors
Positek supplies a selection of high-performance, intrinsically safe position sensors that are ideal for environments exposed to explosive and combustible dust.
Our products are available with the following certifications:
• ATEX approval
• IECEx approval
• CSA approval

Food production, chemical manufacturing and metal processing are just a handful of the applications within which a dust explosion could occur. Any workplace that generates dust is potentially at risk and must therefore meet the necessary dust explosion classification standards.
When using the correct hazardous area equipment however, such as an intrinsically safe industrial position sensor, the flow of electrical energy into a hazardous area is restricted. This ensures any sparks that may occur as a result of an electrical failure are insignificant to cause ignition, and the threat of a dust explosion is eliminated.
