GEL 2478 – ATEX speed and position sensor

The GEL 2478 speed and position sensor delivers a square-wave, voltage output  from 0 Hz without pulse loss and for high-speed rotation up to 20 kHz.

The sensor is suitable for ATEX applications to compliance level Ex II 2G EX ib IIB T4 Gb.

The speed sensor operates based on the magnetic measurement principle. It is maintenance- and wear-free and operates contact free. Measurement of rotation and position is acquired from ferromagnetic target wheels or measuring rods.
