POSITAL has extended its TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors) to include explosion-proof models designed to operate safely in environments that potentially contain dangerous levels of explosive dust or gases. Moreover, these devices have been certified in compliance with IECEx and ATEX directives and are subsequently, suitable for use in mines, oil and gas facilities, agricultural applications, chemical plants, woodworking factories and milling operations.
Have a look below at some of the features and characteristics of the new extension of inclinometers below:
- Zone 1/21 Mining or Oil and Gas
- High Vibration and Shock Resistance
- ±80° (Dual Axis) or 360° (Single Axis)
- CANopen, DeviceNet, Analog, SSI
- Rugged Aluminum and 316 Stainless Steel Housings
- Usage in Gas (2G) and Dust (1D) Hazardous Locations
- Accuracy up to +/- 0.1°
- Large Variety
In addition to other TILTIX inclinometers, the new models are available in single (0-360°) or dual-axis (± 80°) versions and feature resolution as high as 0.01° and 0.1° accuracy. Available communications interfaces include DeviceNet, CANopen, Modbus RTU, SSI and analog output. Also, analog models can be programmed so that a predetermined range of mechanical motion is set span the full electrical output range. Rugged aluminum and 316 stainless steel housings are offered, with other materials available by special order.
