S623 Submersible Large Angle Tilt Sensor

The 350bar S623 tilt sensor is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy sensor designed for underwater marine and offshore applications. The S623, like all Positek sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 15 and 160 degrees. The sensor provides a linear output characteristic with angle of deflection. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.

It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications such as industrial machinery where cost is important.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. It is sealed to IP68 350bar (5000psi, 3500m depth).

The sensor has a rugged stainless steel body and mounting flange. The S623 offers a range of electrical options. Full EMC protection is built in.

All of Positek’s position sensors are manufactured to the highest quality and use our very own patented non-contact technology. This helps to ensure the highest levels of accuracy and reliability, even in the harshest of environments. Every position sensor that Positek manufactures uses their inductive sensor technology to ensure high-precision results, and is fully customisable to meet the unique requirements of your business.

With over 25 years’ experience as a sensor manufacturer and using our onsite production facility, Positek has the flexibility to manufacture and customise any industrial position sensor, including tilt sensors and inclinometers, to any size or specification.

Positek offers a range of options for its standard sensors. Each sensor is manufactured to suit each customer's preferences. If your requirement is outside the options given below, Positek can modify/ redesign a sensor to suit your specific requirement. Standard options are available as below:

 

Measurement Range

Factory set to any length from ±7.5° to ±80° in increments of 1°. For example, if your application requires 90° measurement, then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this angular range. The sensor will measure 90° however will still rotate through 360°.
