Control Devices (Aust)  offers a new dual output, no-contact rotary position sensor with slim low profile housing introduced by Penny + Giles.  

The dual output rotary position sensor uses a factory-programmable hall-effect sensor system.  

NRH280DP rotary position sensor features a co-moulded fully encapsulated sensor system that can withstand high shock and vibration as well as operate up to 170°C and endure high pressure wash-downs (IP69K).  

The sensor is activated by a separate magnet with a choice of two carrier designs.  

NRH280DP rotary position sensor is designed for applications in extreme environments where space is limited. It also allows up to ±2mm radial offset with a permissible gap of 2-7mm between the sensor and magnet.  

The transmissive properties between the magnet and sensor also allow operation through non-magnetic materials.  

The NRH280DP rotary position sensor operates from 5Vdc (and 9-30Vdc) and is factory-programmed to allow a wide range of configurations.  

Key features:

  • No-contact technology with external position magnet
  • Unlimited wear-free mechanical lifetime
  • Operates from -40°C to +140°C, with excursions to +170°C
  • Withstands high pressure wash-downs (IP69K)
  • Simple mounting and extremely low profile design
  • Minimal weight
  • Magnet radial offset up to ±2mm, air gap 2-7mm
  • Extremely low signal noise
  • Electrically interchangeable with potentiometers
  • Standard dual channel output
  • Configurable output direction
  • Measurement range from 20° to 360° in 1° increments
  • 12-bit resolution (0.025%) over the angular range
  • Independent linearity ±0.4%
  • Analogue (0.5 - 4.5 or 0.1 - 4.9Vdc) or PWM outputs
  • 2.5 or 0.15mS input/output delay
