Contactless rotary sensor provides
peak performance in harsh environments.
Leading manufacturer of high precision sensing
equipment, Penny + Giles, has launched its largest
ontactless rotary position sensor, the SRH880.
Using proven, non-contact Hall effect technology, the new SRH880
is robust and can operate in high dither conditions with a virtually
limitless sensor life. It also features a rugged aluminium or corrosion
resistant stainless steel housing for use in harsh environments. As
a result OEMs benefit from a reliable, long life sensor that provides
accurate rotary measurement in construction, agricultural, military
and utility vehicles.
SRH880 has a 12mm diameter shaft and is presented in an 88mm
housing with a protection rating of IP68M. It is fully submersible and
can operate at a depth of up to two meters. It features a double
bearing support with superior shaft strength for increased reliability
in heavy-duty applications.
The SRH880 sensor operates from an 8-30Vdc unregulated supply
and provides an electrical output over 90°, 180°, 270° or the full 360°
range. It is launched with a 10bit microprocessor, a 12bit version is
expected to be available later in the year. For ease of configuration,
it is available with an analogue (0.5 to 4.5Vdc) or digital (pulse width
modulated) signal output and it can be integrated into existing and
new equipment simply.
The SRH880 is the latest in the range of contactless rotary position
sensors from Penny + Giles which includes the popular SRH280 with
a 28mm housing.
