Control Products Inc. has introduced the ‘SL2000’ linear position sensor that is both deep sea submersible and ATEX and IEC-EX intrinsic safety rated.
The sensor is designed for the hydraulic cylinders and accumulators such as those used in offshore oilfield mining and drilling operations or heavy duty construction and military vehicles.
“Our reinvented and patented draw-wire measurement system uses the latest advances in material science and precision engineering and manufacturing, to create a system that has achieved 1 million cycles immersed in oil, gas, or even seawater. “ says CPI vice president Mac Stuhler. “with our intrinsic safety rated SL2000, we are now appropriate for deployment in all drilling platform hydraulics or any hydraulic cylinder application that requires a high safety rating in a harsh environment.”
In addition to being intrinsic safety rated, the CPI sensor system is one of the few systems in the world that can be reliably deployed on telescoping hydraulic cylinders, the company noted.
Control Products designs and builds its SL2000, and all its sensors in its US location.
