Dust Application Sensors
As the UK’s leading industrial position sensor manufacturer, Positek supplies a number of rotary sensors suited for applications that are exposed to combustible dust and other dust hazards.
Our sensors, which offer explosive dust protection, operate on the basis of intrinsic safety. Using a galvanically isolated three port amplifier, our intrinsically safe systems restrict the flow of electrical energy into a hazardous area, eliminating the threat of a dust explosion by ensuring any sparks created are insufficient to cause ignition.
All of our intrinsically safe sensors have met various dust explosion classification standards, having earned one of more of the following certifications:
• ATEX approval
• IECEx approval
• CSA approval.
