Eddy current sensors EZ1000 - non-contact  measurements for ATEX areas

Eddy current sensors EZ1000 - non-contact measurements for ATEX areas

22 April 2021

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik Eddy current sensors of the EZ1000 series are designed for measurements under the toughest conditions and can be used in areas with explosion hazards. Thanks to the eddy current measuring principle, the measurement is contactless and is not affected by environmental influences such as water, dust or oil.

The distance sensors from WayCon's partner Emerson have measuring ranges up to 4 mm with a linearity of ±0.025 mm. The sensors' threaded stainless steel housing allows for easy and secure mounting. In addition, the durable housing also gives the eddy current sensors an IP67 protection rating and allows them to be used in temperatures ranging from -35 to +180 °C. The sensor heads can also be used under an operating pressure of up to 10 bar without any problems. The measuring amplifier is securely mounted in a control cabinet for measurements under such extreme conditions.

Another advantage of the EZ1000 series is that calibration of the measurement chain can be performed by the customer with a single push of a button. This allows easy replacement of the sensor heads in case of damage.
