Non-contacting inductive technology eliminates wear for Positek’s new submersible rotary sensor

Positek’s technology is a thoroughly proven advance in other displacement sensor principles. Developed and refined over several years, the technology wins against conventional potentiometric, hall and RVDT with simpler coils and less environmental suceptability. Positek’s...

Positek launch new subsea pressure transmitter for marine, offshore and submersible applications

The S401 series has a specified range accuracy of less than 0.5% and a stated non-linearity of less than 0.15% of range. Repeatability and stability/year both at less than 0.10% of the measurement range. The transmitter is designed for use in temperatures from -40 to +125°C (compensated range...

Positek’s displacement sensors comprehensively include ATEX, IECEx and CSA intrinsically safe versions

Positek sensors offer exceptionally long life and superior reliability through characteristically high shock and vibration resistance in a non-contacting and long-life design that scores favourably against, potentiometer, LVDT/RVDT and magneto-strictive sensor technologies. With...

Further product and manufacturing expansion for the Variohm Group through CPI™ acquisition – harsh duty position sensing and switching technologies

CPI’s specialist range of standard and ATEX/IECEX/SIL2 rated draw-wire position sensors and its waterproof switch and thermal switching technologies perfectly suit harsh duty application areas where the ISO9001 registered manufacturer has over seventy years’ experience in demanding...

Positek’s new S119 series precision linear position sensor is submersible and compact

Positek’s technology, a major advance in displacement sensor technology, is available in three derivative displacement measurement formats: LIPS®, RIPS® and TIPS® (Linear, Rotary and Tilt). They cost-effectively provide the simplicity of potentiometer-based sensors in a...

Positek’s customised linear displacement sensors meet fast delivery and high specification for motorway structural monitoring

Compounded by such restraints they contacted Positek Limited who pulled out the stops and within a one-week timescale delivered around forty custom-built sensors featuring a unique differential coil design with electronic temperature compensation and full IP68...
