Submersible Position Sensors

Positek supplies a range of high-accuracy position sensors specifically designed for use in submersible applications


Manufactured from marine grade 316 stainless, with sealing up to IP68 350 bar (3500MSW), and offering superior reliability over alternative technologies such as submersible lvdt, rvdt or potentiometer, our underwater sensors are used in a wide variety of marine applications such as oil exploration, UAV, water flow gates and tidal generation systems. 

With a far greater life expectancy to a waterproof potentiometer and no change in performance over time the Positek submersible range is the first choice in sensing technologies.

The submersible range includes Linear, Rotary and Tilt models all available sealed to 350bar, 5000psi (3500MSW). We also offer a range of 10bar submersible linear sensors for less demanding applications.

As with every position sensor that we supply, our submersible position sensor solutions employ non-contact technology to ensure the highest levels of reliability, even when underwater. Every submersible sensor within our range therefore operates without  wear to the sensing parts, and boasts an extremely low failure rate.

Unlike many submersible sensor manufacturers, Positek has the flexibility to customise any submersible position sensor to fit your required size or specification. If our standard range is not suited to your application, please contact a member of our design team to discuss your requirements. We can then have your marine sensor assembled and dispatched in as little as 1-2 working days.
