Sensor operating in adverse conditions for paper machine

The paper is produced from pulp which is fed onto a 'tape' and is then passed through a hot section, running continuously at over 90°C, which gradually dries the pulp out until it is strong enough to be handled as a continuous sheet. The whole process is simple in nature but the...

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...
