Posital tilt sensor models designed for applications in potentially explosive environments.

POSITAL has added explosion-proof models its TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors) that have been certified in compliance with IECEx and ATEX directives. They are certified for use in mines and underground (Group I, Ex I M2 Ex e mb I Mb) and in above-ground workplaces (Group II, EX II 2G Ex e mb IIc TX Gb – explosive gases – and EX II 1D Ex ta IIIC TX Da IP65 – flammable dust). Like other TILTIX inclinometers, the new models are available in single-axis (0-360°) or dual-axis (± 80°) versions and feature resolution as high as 0.01°. Accuracy is up to + 0.1°. Available communications interfaces include DeviceNet, CANopen, Modbus RTU, SSI and analog output. These housings have environmental protection ratings of up to IP67.
