Position sensor

Postby somnonaut » Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:34 am

Anyone know of a position sensor that allows either planned replacement of batteries or unplanned but able to replace batteries in a position sensor?

I am sick and tired of spending $245 /year for a new sensor, when all that is needed is a ned battery. I have cracked a Sleepmate open and the battery is welded to the terminals, so no replacement possible.

Are Braebon able to be cracked open and have their battery repalced?

Is this for Compumedics? I've had to replace a position sensor once in 6 years

No XLTEK. They use a DC input and it has to be low impedance.

Thanks but alas..."The sensor may be connected to suitable high level channels on the recorder."

I'm not sure what that sentence means, but I think it fits your need: DC & low impedance.

Typical Signal Amplitude 0-1 V
Battery Life 30 month
Output Impedance < 100 Ω

I assumed it meant high level like Megaohm.

Though they only offer
1/8” Mini Phone Plug
Wire Length: 6.5 foot (200 cm)
Key connector
Wire Length: 12 inch (30 cm)

I need 2mm pins for typical headbox connection. Or use another adapter, etc.

I have only had the Sleepmate sensor that was provided with this XLTEK system. I do not wish to have to spend $200+ to try another sensor.

3 beds. It must have the regular headbox 2mm jacks. I don't want you to go out of your way.
