H603 Large Angle Tilt Sensor


CSA Approved Intrinsically Safe sensors for Hazardous DUST atmospheres
Available in any travel from 15° to 160°


The Positek H603 TIPS® (Tilt Inductive Position Sensor) incorporates electronics system EX06 which is CSA approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour and dust atmospheres.
The H603 is designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas. The H603, 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. Electrical connections to the sensor are made via an industrial standard 4-pin M12 connector, with limited rotational capability to facilitate cable routing.
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 (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.

Galvanic Isolation Amplifier

It is imperative Positek® intrinsically safe sensors be used in
conjunction with a galvanic barrier to meet the requirements
of the product certification. The Positek G005 Galvanic
Isolation Amplifier is purpose made for Positek IS sensors
making it the perfect choice. Refer to the G005 datasheet for
product specification and output configuration options.

The Positek® G005 Galvanic Isolation Amplifier is available with 0.5 - 9.5V
or 4 - 20mA transmission output options or reverse outputs of 9.5 - 0.5
volts or 20 - 4 mA

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°.
