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 PIPS® 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...

Positek’s PIPS™ technology simplifies multi-point displacement measurement for large-scale structural monitoring tasks

For displacement monitoring on road and rail bridges and similarly large structures, a typical complement of several individually mounted Positek sensors, such as heavy-duty S115 series push-rod variant, can be used to monitor the real-time displacement between critical structural elements. These...

Sensor operating in Crosol textile carding machine

The sensor chosen for this measurement and control system was the Positek P502 small angle rotary sensor. The sensor measures a maximum angle of ±2.5° rotation and produces a 0.5V to 9.5V output over the range from a 24V supply. Potentiometers were originally rejected for the...
