About the X502 Rotary Inductive Position Sensor
The intrinsically safe X502 rotary sensor is ATEX and IECEx approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. It is designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications, like the X500 but with better resolution at smaller angles of deflection, and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.
The sensor provides a linear output proportional with angle of rotation. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required between 5 and 15 degrees and with full EMC protection built in. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.
The intrinsically safe sensors are designed to be used with a galvanically isolated amplifier. Approved galvanic isolation amplifiers are available; 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.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The X502 has long service life and environmental resistance with a rugged stainless steel body and shaft, the flange and servo mounts are anodised aluminium. The flange or servo mounting options make the sensor easy to install. Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.
