New heavy duty rotary position sensor is capable
of operating in harsh conditions.
Penny + Giles has announced the SRS880,
a new rugged, sealed rotary position sensor
which is larger and more robust than existing
sensors on the market.
Benefiting from variable angles, sensor element stability and
virtually infinite resolution, SRS880 has been designed and
manufactured for position monitoring in heavy duty applications,
such as steering position monitoring and hydraulic lifting
systems on agricultural and utility vehicles, as well as a variety
of applications in steelworks and power generating plants.
With an 88mm diameter housing and 12mm diameter shaft,
SRS880 uses established technology and innovative design
features to provide maximum performance under extremes
of temperature, humidity, vibration and shock.
The sensor can be mounted via three M6 threaded holes in
the front face or alternatively by three M6 clearance holes
through the body. Sealed to IP68, SRS880 is suitable for
use in very wet and dirty hostile environments, and like others
in the SRS range it can be manufactured and despatched within
three to five days of ordering.
SRS880 offers a range of thirty-five different models with angles
from 10* to 350* in 10* increments which allows the user to
match the sensitivity of the system to the application for better
data acquisition and closer control. The sensor uses proven
long-life hybrid potentiometer track technology providing high
stability with virtually infinite resolution and a life in excess
of 50 million operations.
To enable the new sensor to be integrated into existing and
new equipment easily, it is supplied with an industry standard
series M12 locking male connector that will mate with most
proprietory sensor cables that meet IEC 60947-5-2 requirements.
A mating straight cabled socket with 2m or 5m lead lengths
can be supplied with the sensor if required.
"SRS880 has been developed in response to customer need
and is the first of its kind to target the more heavy duty applications
- although it is not exclusive just to this market," says Mike Iles,
Business Development Manager. "Anyone who needs a rugged
rotary position sensor could be a potential customer."
