New high durability sensor is
reliable in shock environments.
Penny + Giles, designer and manufacturer of high
precision sensing technology, has launched a new
rotary position sensor. SRH280 uses proven,
non-contact Hall effect technology to provide OEMs
with reliable and accurate rotary measurement in
extreme industrial environments.
Unlike potentiometer sensors, the SRH280 can operate in high
dither vibration conditions with no deterioration of the sensing
element due to the non-contacting operating principle. It is
therefore an attractive alternative for applications such as
position monitoring of valve, steering and throttle positions on
industrial machinery and vehicles.
The sensor provides an electrical output over the full 360 range
and is available with a 10bit microprocessor. A 12bit version
is in development and will be launched in early 2006. For ease
of configuration, it is available with an analogue (0.5 to 4.5Vdc)
or digital (pulse width modulated) signal output. With no
electrical sliding contacts SRH280 offers an almost limitless
SRH280 is presented in the popular 28mm diameter flanged,
dust-proof and waterproof corrosion resistant polymer housing
with a protection rating to IP68. It has an integral moulded
cable assembly that negates the need for a heat-shrinkable boot.
Crush-proof mounting flanges feature steel inserts which protect
the casing from the possibility of damage from over-tightened
mounting bolts. As a result, it can be repositioned as many times
as necessary, unlike traditional designs which often have to be
discarded after only one use.
There is a choice of a D-shaped or sprung ear shaft, both
compatible with existing de-facto industry standards for
straightforward inter-changeability on existing equipment.
