Subsea Position Sensing Solutions

Moorestown, New Jersey, May 10, 2022 Alliance Sensors Groups announces its SSx-7 series of LVIT subsea position sensors. Available in full scale ranges from as short as 1 inch (25 mm) up to 36 inches (900 mm), these devices are constructed of AISI 316 stainless steel to operate at depths of 12,000 feet.


The SSx-7 body style easily fits into an SAE O-ring port in the end of a hydraulic cylinder and is terminated with the popular micro-circular subsea connector. Offered with common analog voltage or current loop outputs, standard SSx-7 series position sensors are good solutions for many subsea applications like:


Choke Actuators in a PBOF Environment

-  BOP Sealing or Shearing Ram Positions

-  Annular BOP Seal Compression Piston

-  ROV Electric and Hydraulic Actuators

-  Hydraulic Cylinder Position Sensing


Nevertheless, because some subsea position measurements may require a customized sensor to meet application-specific requirements. ASG offers short run sensor customization typically involving one or more of the following attributes:


-  Materials and seals for high pressures and/or PBOF operations

-  Compatibility with non-flammable EHC fluids like phosphate esters

-  Popular standard or special high pressure subsea connectors

-  Alternate analog I/Os or customer-specific digital outputs over an RS-485 bus

-  Simplified designs for higher reliability
