Positek showcases submersible and intrinsically safe sensors at Offshore Europe Conference & Exhibition 2023

Positek, the leading manufacturer and world-wide supplier of position sensors and displacement transducers, will showcase its innovative range of submersible and intrinsically safe sensors at Offshore Europe Conference & Exhibition 2023.

Visitors to stand 3H41 will get the opportunity to see Positek’s extensive range of non-contacting linear, rotary and tilt sensors, which are manufactured in-house and use Positek’s own inductive technology to ensure high-precision results and a long working life. The technology operates using a simple, single sensing coil which leaves the sensors less vulnerable to fractures and breakages and also means custom sensors can be designed and manufactured quickly and easily to meet the specifications of any given application.

The range includes submersible sensors specifically designed for use in subsea applications, and ATEX and IECEx approved intrinsically safe sensors for use in potentially explosive environments where there may be gas or vapour in the atmosphere. Made from grade 316 stainless steel, with sealing up to IP68 350 bar, the products available include stand-alone, rugged, large angle, slim-line and cylinder options. Example applications include linear sensors to monitor the position of pistons in hydraulic cylinders or crane boom extensions, and rotary sensors in remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to control and monitor the  manipulator arms,  thrusters and other mechanical components.

Mark Spreadbury, commercial director at Positek, said: “Sensors play a critical role in some of the hardest working equipment used in off-shore and subsea applications, from underwater research and surveying to oil and gas exploration and maintenance. The team are looking forward to speaking with engineers and technical specialists visiting the exhibition, hearing about their applications, sharing our expertise and building new relationships.”
