POSITAL has extended its TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors) to include explosion-proof models designed to operate safely in environments that contain potentially dangerous levels of explosive dust or gases. These devices have been certified in compliance with IECEx and ATEX directives and are suitable for use in mines, oil and gas facilities, agricultural applications, chemical plants, woodworking factories and milling operations.

Explosion-proof TILTIX inclinometers have been carefully evaluated to ensure that there are no hotspots or exposed electrical components that could ignite fires or cause explosions in the presence of flammable dust or gases. 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. Analog models can be programmed so that the full range of electrical output is set to span a predetermined range of mechanical motion. This can significantly improve control system accuracy. Rugged aluminum or 316 stainless steel housings are offered, with other materials available by special order. These housings have environmental protection ratings of up to IP67.

POSITAL makes it easy for customers to find exactly the right ATEX/IECEx-rated inclinometers for their application. The product finder tool at www.posital.com enables a customer to specify the product features required for their project and quickly zero in on the most suitable tilt sensor. POSITAL’s “Minimum Order Quantity: One”/MOQ1 manufacturing system ensures that products – whatever their special features – are assembled and shipped in a matter of days.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
