SMART Position Sensor, Rotary Configuration

Durable, accurate, cost-effective device offers 360-degree non-contact position sensing.

Smart Rotary Sensor And Magnet 10746533

Honeywell rounds out its SMART position sensor portfolio with its Rotary Configuration that provides 360 degree non-contact angular position sensing.

  • Enables design engineers to replace an optical encoder, or to utilize a sensor instead of a resolver
  • Utilizes non-contact magnetoresistive (MR) technology to determine the object’s position, which allows it to accurately sense position in dirty and harsh environments
  • Measures values down to 0.01 degrees
  • Potential transportation applications include steering angle, articulation angle and boom arm detection
  • Uses a patented combination of an ASIC and an array of MR sensors to accurately determine the position of a magnet collar attached to a rotating object to identify and control the object’s position
  • Helps OEMs reduce warranty costs because there are fewer parts to wear out or break down
  • Automotive-grade potting makes it more resistant to vibration, shock, and extreme temperatures
  • Repeatable output occurs within a 3.0 mm ±2.0 mm (0.118 in. ±0.079 in.) air gap between the sensor and magnet collar
  • Provides minimal signal error with up to 2.50 mm (0.10 in.) of radial error
