E623 Large Angle, Waterproof, Submersible Tilt Sensor


ATEX Approved Intrinsically Safe sensors
for Hazardous Dust Environments

Available in any travel from 15° to 160°


The E603 TIPS® (Tilt Inductive Position Sensor) is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour and dust atmospheres.
It is sealed to IP68 350bar (5000psi, 3500m depth).
The E603, like all Positek sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 15 and 160 degrees and with full EMC protection built in. The sensor provides a linear output characteristic with angle of deflection. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and mounting flange. The flange has two 4.5mm by 30 degree wide slots on a 48mm pitch to simplify mounting and position adjustment. Environmental sealing is to IP67.




Positek intrinsically safe sensors are designed to be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier .  Approved galvanic isolation amplifiers (X005) 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.




Specification

Intrinsic Safety

 

ATEX/IECEx approval

The sensor is ATEX/ IECEx approved to Ex II 1GD Ex ia IIC T4 Ga Ex ia 111C T135°C Da (Ta = -40°C to + 80°C ).  This designates the sensor as belonging to; Group II: suitable for all areas except mining, Category 1 GD: can be used in areas with continuous, long or frequent periods of exposure to hazardous gas (Zones 2 to 0) and dust (Zone 20).

Gas:

Protection class ia, denotes intrinsically safe for all zones.

Apparatus group IIC: suitable for IIA, IIB and IIC

explosive gases.

Temperature class T4: maximum sensor surface

temperature under fault conditions 135°C .

Dust:

T135°C: maximum sensor surface temperature under

fault conditions 135°C .

Ambient temperature range extended to -40°C to

+ 80°C .
Approval only applies to the specified ambient temperature range and atmospheric conditions in the range 0.80 to 1.10 Bar, oxygen <=21%.

Galvanic Isolation Amplifier

Intrinsically safe sensors must be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier with safety parameters not exceeding:- Ui: 11.4V, Ii: 0.2A, Pi: 0.51W.  Sensor can be installed with a cable length up to 1000m maximum from the amplifier, cable capacitance and inductance can be up to:- Capacitance: 200 nF max, Inductance: 810 μH max.

Approved amplifiers are available from Positek; there is a

choice of 0.5-9.5V or 4-20mA transmission outputs.

Preferences

Positek offers a range of options for its standard sensors.
Each sensor is manufactured to suit each customer's preferences.
If your requirement is outside the options given below,
Positek can modify/ redesign a sensor to suit your specific requirement.
Standard options are available as below:

 

Measurement range:

Factory set to Any angle from ±7.5° to ±80° in increments of 1°
For example, if your application requires 90° measurement
then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this angular range.
The sensor will measure 90° however will still rotate through 360°.

 

Connector:

Option code
Axial micro wet mate bulkhead and mating connector with 50cm flying lead (Standard fit)
Mating connector with longer cables available as a special.
J50
