The new submersible position sensor withstands deep sea environments with external pressures up to 5000 psi in excess of 1 million hours mean time between failure (MTBF), when encased in special alloys. The sensor also features error of less than 0.01% of full range, regardless of offsets due to pressure and/or temperature. The unit can be used in a variety of subsea measurement systems, including elongation measurement as part of long-term finite element analysis of pipelines, derricks, moorings, choke valves and other critical high-stress members on offshore oil platforms that must be constantly monitored to ensure ongoing drilling platform stability. The position sensor also can measure the extension of structural members of oil platforms to a fraction of a microstrain. To ensure oil platforms don't shift, movement is measured to less than 2 mm.
