Penny + Giles have released a variant of the popular contactless rotary position sensor range, which uses a factory programmable non-contact Hall effect sensor system. It is available from Control Devices (Aust) .

TPS280DP rotary position sensor are designed as modern alternatives to rotary potentiometers fitted on high performance race car and motorcycle induction systems.

Replacing a potentiometer with the TPS280DP rotary position sensors will eliminate premature failure due to electrical noise – caused by potentiometer wear. TPS280DP is life tested to 30 million cycles (60 million operations), more than NINE TIMES that of a potentiometer in this application.

TPS280DP rotary position sensor is mechanically interchangeable with most existing throttle potentiometers using 32mm mounting centers and is designed to interface with most common throttle body D type spindles. The sensor has a choice of 200 or 500mm cable lengths, with or without an MSS4P Mini Sure Seal connector fitted to the FDR-25 sheathed spec 55A cable. With sealing to IP69K, it is also able to withstand high pressure wash-downs.

The TPS280DP rotary position sensor operates from 5Vdc (and 9-30Vdc) and is factory programmed to allow a wide range of configurations.


  • Standard output is dual channel 
  • Configurable output direction, for left or right fitment 
  • Electrically interchangeable with potentiometers 
  • More than 9x the life of a potentiometer 
  • Sealed to withstand high pressure wash-downs (IP69K) 
  • Mechanically interchangeable with potentiometers on 32mm mountings 
  • Measurement range from 20 to 360° in 1° increments 
  • 12 bit resolution (0.025%) over the angular range 
  • Analogue (0.5 - 4.5 or 0.1 - 4.9Vdc) or PWM outputs 
  • 2.5 or 0.15mS input/output delay
  • Extremely low signal noise, for the life of the sensor 
  • Will operate from -40 to +140°C, with excursions to +170°C
