X115 (Submersible) Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Sealed to IP68 10bar, 100msw, 145psi

About the X115 (Submersible) Linear Inductive Position Sensor

Our intrinsically safe X115 LIPS (Linear Inductive Position Sensor) incorporates electronics system EX04 which is ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres.

The X115 is a heavy-duty version of the X114 sensor with a stronger 12.7mm push rod, recommended for applications where vibration is an issue or there is a need for longer travel sensors which are to be mounted horizontally between rod eyes.

It remains an affordable, durable, high-accuracy position sensor designed for applications where the sensor would be completely submerged during normal operation, up to a pressure of 10Bar. The unit is highly compact and space-efficient, being responsive along almost its entire length.

The X115 provides a linear output proportional to displacement. Each sensor is supplied with the output calibrated to the travel required by the customer, from 50 to 600mm 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 stainless steel M8 rod eye bearings and body clamps. The push rod can be supplied free or captive, with female M8 thread, or an M8 stainless steel rod eye. The X115 also offers a selection of mechanical and electrical options, environmental sealing is to IP68 10 Bar.
