X114 (Submersible) Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Sensor may be completely submerged in water up to a pressure of 10Bar

About the X114 (Submersible) Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our intrinsically safe X114 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) incorporates electronics system EX07 which is ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres.

The X114 is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor derived from the X101. Designed for applications where the sensor would be completely submerged during normal operation, it retains desirable features such as compact size, good sensor performance yet capable of working in pressures up to 10Bar.

The X114 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 5 to 800mm and with full EMC protection built in. The sensor is very robust, the body and push rod being made of stainless steel for long service life and environmental resistance. Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range.

The sensor is easy to install with mounting options including M5 stainless steel rod eye bearings and body clamps. The push rod can be supplied free or captive, with female M5 thread, or an M5 stainless steel rod eye. The X114 also offers a selection of mechanical and electrical options, environmental sealing is to IP68 10Bar.
