Extension Cables for Proximity Systems

A typical proximity system includes proximity probe, extension cable and an oscillator demodulator. In a Metrix proximity system, the oscillator demodulator can take the form of a driver with a voltage output to a monitoring system, or a transmitter with a 4-20mA output to a control system. A key part of the proximity system is the extension cable. The extension cable allows the proximity probe to be connected to the oscillator demodulator. This gives flexibility to the installation. Standard extension cables are 4, 4.5, 6, 6.5, 8, and 8.5 meter cables. Metrix accommodates other sizes, as well, for standard 5, 7 and 9 meter systems. One of the nice features of the Digital Proximity System (DPS) is that we can accommodate many different system lengths with the same device.

Metrix main line products include the MX8030 and MX2030 series proximity systems. These systems are interchangeable with BN 3300 and 3300 XL proximity systems. One can take a BN 3300 XL extension cable or proximity probe and can change it with a Metrix MX8030 probe or cable and the system will continue to meet API 670 requirements.

Metrix also produces legacy probes and cables, namely the 7200 and 3000 series, that provide a source of spare parts to OEMs and End Users that don’t want to change part number.  

To meet our customer’s needs, we have developed a reliable line of cables for proximity devices. Metrix cables are interchangeable with BN cables Series 3300, 7200, and 3000. They are available with or without armor and in multiple lengths to better match your system requirements.

MX8031 Extension Cables

MX8031 Extension Cable System comes standard with VibeLock™* and Triaxial Cables. The VibeLock™* feature ensures a proximity probe and extension cable connection is made properly and stays connected. No special tools are required. The Triaxial Cable provides an extra layer of protection to help prevent excessive wear during installation and in high vibration areas.  The external shield of the Triaxial Cable is not used electrically, but it is used for additional physical cable/signal protection.
