G106 Internally Mounted Cylinder Sensor with External Electronics

G106 Internally Mounted Cylinder Sensor with External Electronics

The intrinsically safe G106 is CSA approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. The G106 is designed for demanding hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder position feedback applications where service life, environmental resistance and cost are important and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length. Like all Positek® sensors it provides a linear output proportional to displacement, each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 0-5mm to 0-800mm and with full EMC protection built in.

The G106 is very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer-sheathed probe and stainless steel target tube. The probe and target are easy to install, as is the electronics module which has a range of mounting options. Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.

Positek intrinsically safe sensors are designed to be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier. Approved galvanic isolation amplifiers (G005) are available from Positek; there is a choice of 0.5-9.5V or 4-20mA transmission outputs.

The sensor can be installed with a cable length up to 1km between the sensor and the amplifier.
