Turck Australia announces a new line of inductive angle sensors designed to provide accurate valve monitoring on rotary actuators.
Operating with the inductive resonant circuit measuring principle, these inductive angle sensors deliver enhanced valve monitoring on rotary actuators. The sensors are designed with an innovative open face design, providing analogue or discrete outputs and flexible mounting options.
Key capabilities of TURCK inductive angle sensors include monitoring three-way valves, while also detecting the valve position during cleaning cycles, and detecting the wear of seals, saving downtime from seals that are worn from switching cycles.
The sensors allow flexible operation with a choice of two models: While one has two programmable PNP switching outputs, the other has two scalable analogue outputs of 0...10V and 4...20mA.
Marty Cwach, Product Manager, TURCK explains that TURCK inductive angle sensors, in comparison to typical sensors provide a freely adjustable range within 360 degrees, eliminating the need for adjustment and readjustments of the actuating element and reducing the amount of manual labour required.
Featuring a protection rating of IP67 and a rugged, compact housing design, the inductive angle sensors provide a wear-free sensing solution in harsh applications. The sensors also provide optimal performance in a wide operating temperature range from -25°C to +75°C, making them suitable for valve automation, steering position feedback and dancer arm control applications.
TURCK's extensive line of products includes advanced sensors, measurement, instrumentation, connectivity, interface and networks for factory and process markets.
