Linear Transducer and Linear Position Sensing Technology

In a highly industrialised world, many industries depend on the use of machine to perform functions that would have been impossible manually. The innovations in engineering has paved way for a more developed way of life across the globe. The optimum efficiency of machines depend on each individual...

Angle Sensor Technology and Understanding its Application

Simply put, an angle sensor or rotary sensor measures the relationship of an objects position with respect to another position that is established. It calculates the displacement of an object with respect to a specified reference position. This information is expressed by the number of rotations...

How undersea valves use sensors

In oil pipelines, drilling rigs and even in water treatment works submersible valves are used to regulate the flow of air or liquid through a pipe or within a piece of machinery. As with any operational valve there must be some element of control over the position of the valve, and because...

Position sensors on actuators

Actuators are used in nearly every moving piece of equipment, from automatic doors to oil refinery equipment, from cars to luxury yachts. Traditionally they use hydraulic technology to effect the linear movement, as a small initial force can be easily translated into a larger output force and...

Sensors shipped worldwide

Did you know Positek has a worldwide distribution network? We can supply all over the globe so wherever you are in the world there is a way to get a Positek sensor. We have sensor distributors in most of the major European countries and Russia, and those without a dedicated distributor are...

Understanding ingress protection for your sensors

Sensors used in industrial environments are regularly subjected to noise, dust, moisture, heat and vibrations, all of which can cause damage to the sensor and affect the accuracy of the readings it takes. Many industrial sensors are designed to be sturdier than ones used in less punishing...
