Everight Precision Introduces World's Most Robust, Intrinsically Safe Linear Position Sensor in its Class

Penn Valley, PA, April 12, 2007... Everight Precision Technologies Corporation, the North American distributor for British sensor manufacturer Positek, Ltd., offers the Positek X111 intrinsically safe linear variable inductive transducer position sensor for use in oil and gas exploration, production, and transportation, heavy equipment, factory automation applications. ATEX certified to EEX ia IIC TA standards (TA = -40º to +80 ºC), equivalent to US Class 1, Div 1, Groups B, C, D, the X111 is the world's most robust intrinsically safe linear position/displacement sensor in the 50 - 800mm measurement range. Built and calibrated for the user's measurement range, the X111 is highly linear and repeatable, and offered in a variety of mounting configurations. Positek X Series sensors provide either a 0.5 - 9.5V DC or a 4-20mA analog output signal that represents absolute position available immediately on power up.

With no wearing contacts, Positek inductive transducers are extremely reliable over very long time periods (virtual infinite life) and maintain output stability over a wide temperature range. The X111 features rugged stainless steel bodies sealing between IP65 and IP68, depending upon selected cable or connector options. Full EMC protection is built in.
