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...

Positek's Cylinder Position Sensor Technology

A cylinder position sensor used in hydraulic and pneumatic actuators determines the end stroke and home of the piston head inside the cylinder. The increasing demand for better control and function made cylinder position sensors more relevant in industrial applications such as in hydraulic and...

An Introduction to Positek's Submersible Position Sensors

The mining industry, as well as other marine-related sectors, use a variety of equipment, underwater vehicles, drones, and small submarines that need position sensors for feedback and control. Ordinary position sensor technology is not suitable for the conditions in which these pieces of machinery...

Tilt Sensors: Practical Applications and Importance in Heavy Equipment Safety

Every position sensor has a specific function; whether to detect motion along a linear path or in the case of tilt sensors, to measure an object's tilt along an axis or multiple axes with reference to a plane. To simplify how a tilt sensor works, it detects the tilting position of an object in...
