Displacement Transducer

What is a Displacement Transducer? A displacement transducer is a device used to convert the motion of an object or machine into electromagnetic, magnetoelectric, or electrostatic signals. These signals are read and interpreted into data. Our Positek PIPS sensors are a type of displacement...

Submersible Linear Sensors

Made from marine grade stainless steel and offering the reliability that is not possible from a submersible LVDT or linear potentiometer, our sensors have served a host of different industries such as wastewater and offshore oil drilling. Another use for the submersible linear sensor is as an...

Inclinometer Definition

Inclinometers are extremely common and are often in high demand with new machines, technologies and innovations growing constantly. Because they measure the angle of the chosen concerning gravity, inclinometers are used to help detect inclination, angle, tilt, or orientation. Our inclinometers...

Gas and Vapour Application Sensors

Intrinsically safe systems restrict the flow of electrical energy into a hazardous or potentially explosive environment. Any sparks that may occur as the result of an electrical failure are therefore not strong enough to cause ignition, even when hazardous is present.  When dealing in harsh...

Non-Contact Linear Displacement Sensors

In recent years there has been a shift in technology across all sectors which has led to a higher demand for Non-contact Linear Displacement Sensors over contacting alternatives. This has then led to an increase in new technologies meaning that there are...

Rotation Sensor Definition

Rotation sensors are used in a variety of environments and applications to ensure the components within the device are working correctly. They are available in different technologies and each one has their own way of working with different advantages.   Types of Rotation Sensor Positek...
