M100 Cylinder Linear Position Sensor
The intrinsically safe M100 LIPS® (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour, dust atmospheres and mining environments.
It 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, the M100 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 20 to 600mm and with full EMC protection built in. The sensor is very rugged, being made of stainless steel with an inert fluoropolymer-sheathed probe and stainless steel target tube. The sensor is easy to install in cylinders and has a range of mechanical options. Environmental sealing is to IP67 .
Positek intrinsically safe sensors are designed to be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier . Approved amplifiers 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 amplifier and the sensor.
