H603 Large Angle Tilt Sensor
CSA Approved Intrinsically
Safe sensors for Hazardous DUST atmospheres
Available in any travel from 15° to
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
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.
