Rotary position sensors

Rotary potentiometers - general purpose

The RP5100 general-purpose range of positon sensors are used extensively in automotive measurement systems for monitoring suspension movement, steering angle and gear position. The case is manufactured from durable polymer and is fitted with a bush type bearing. The measurement element utilises thick-track technology coupled with precious metal multi-fingered electrical contacts. The sensor has an infinite output resolution coupled with long operational life.

Rotary potentiometers - high performance

The RP5200 high performance range of sensors are used extensively in measurement systems where system reliability is a consideration. The case is machined from aluminium and the sensor is environmentally sealed to IP66.The measurement element utilises thick-track technology with precious metal multi-fingered electrical contacts. The operating shaft is guided between two precision stainless steel ball race bearings providing excellent vibration and shock performance.

Magnetic hall contactless rotary position sensors - general purpose

The MHR5100 general purpose range of contactless rotary position sensors are based on proven hall effect measurement technology. The case is manufactured from durable polymer and fitted with chemical resistant cabling. Models available with the choice of either a sprung, round or blade shaft and a separate magnet option, the sensing circuit is fully encapsulated and sealed to IP68/IP69K.

Magnetic hall contactless rotary position sensors - high performance

The high performance range of contactless rotary position sensors are based on proven hall-effect technology. The case is machined from aluminium to provide a versatile measurement solution for systems that experience severe shock and vibration. Models available with the choice of either a sprung, round or blade shaft and a separate magnet option, the shaft is guided between two stainless steel ball-race, low friction bearings. Available with single or dual outputs, the sensing circuit is fully encapsulated and sealed to IP68/IP69K.

Magnetic hall contactless rotary position sensors - industrial

The industrial range of contactless rotary position sensors have been specially developed to meet the harsh operating requirements in heavy-duty, industrial position-sensing applications such as construction, agricultural, military and utility vehicles, as well as a variety of uses in steelworks and power-generating plants. With measurement ranges up to 360°, the sensing circuit is fully encapsulated and sealed to IP68/IP69K
