G500 Rotary Inductive Position Sensor

CSA approved intrinsically safe sensors for hazardous gas applications calibrated between 16-160 degrees

About the G500 Rotary Inductive Position Sensor

The intrinsically safe G500 is CSA approved for use in potentially explosive gas/vapour atmospheres. The G500 is designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications and is ideal for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications in hazardous areas.

The sensor is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required between 16 and 160 degrees and with full EMC protection built in. The sensor provides a linear output proportional with angle of rotation. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The G500 has long service life and environmental resistance with a rugged stainless steel body and shaft. The flange or servo mounting options make the sensor easy to install, it also offers a range of mechanical options. Environmental sealing is to IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options.

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.
