Intrinsically Safe Rotary Sensors

Specialists in standard and custom intrinsically safe sensor design


As part of our extensive range of rotary sensors, we supply a selection of intrinsically safe sensors that are specially designed for use in potentially explosive environments. 

Intrinsically safe equipment systems provide a safe operating environment for personnel and equipment by restricting the flow of electrical energy into a hazardous area. Therefore, any sparks that may be generated as a result of electrical failures will not be strong enough to cause ignition. 

This is what makes intrinsically safe sensors, such as the Positek rotary position transducer, one of the safer systems on the market. 

Not only do our intrinsically safe sensors eradicate the threat of an explosion, but as with every sensor that we produce, our rotary sensor solutions utilise contactless technology to ensure unrivalled reliability, especially over rotary potentiometer technology. The rotary position sensor therefore operates without wear or interference in all applications, and boasts an exceptionally long cycle-life.

If our standard range does not fulfil your requirements, please contact a member of our engineering team, who will be able to custom design an intrinsically safe sensor to suit. Unlike many rvdt manufacturers, we can ship your inductive electronic angle sensor out to you in as little as 1-2 working days.
