What is an Inclinometer?

An inclinometer, also known as a tilt sensor, is a device used for the measurement of the slope or angle of an object with reference to gravity. They are part of our extensive product range here at Positek.What is an Inclinometer?Inclinometers are one of the most common types of sensor on the...

What is Linear Displacement?

Linear Displacement can be defined as the movement of an object in a straight line along a single axis up and down or side to side. Linear Displacement is often a movement which requires measurement and can be measured in either inches or millimetres using linear position sensors. Many of the...

Intrinsically Safe Positek Position Sensors for Dust Environments

The working environment has a significant effect on choosing the right type of sensor for a specific application. External elements and contaminants such as dust affect the lifespan and performance of a sensor, like in the case of contacting sensors. For most industrial applications, the...

Exceptional Features of Positek's Intrinsically Safe Sensors

The mining industry is no doubt one of the most hazardous working environments today. Mining companies use a broad range of machines and equipment to perform most of the tasks involved in extracting and transporting valuable products produced from mining sites. One of the most crucial...

Intrinsically Safe Sensors for Hazardous Gas and Vapour Environments

In many industrial applications of position sensors, the assembly requires sensors to meet intrinsic safety standards. An intrinsic safety system by definition is equipment and corresponding wiring that is not capable of releasing enough thermal or electric energy to cause ignition in the presence...

Superior Angle Sensor Technology by Positek

The importance of position feedback spans across various industrial sectors. A displacement sensor is an instrument which determines the displacement of an object in relation to a reference null position. In the field of position sensing, different types of sensors are used with respect to the kind...
