Rotary position sensors accurately measure angular displacement in control and monitoring systems. They are used extensively in aviation, medical equipment, construction and agricultural vehicle and automotive applications. We offer a wide range of technologies that provide precise measurements in high temperature, hostile environments. Our range includes high performance, robust sealed rotary potentiometers, contactless high temperature RVDT sensors, Hall Effect contactless rotary sensors and XRT DC angular sensors.
RP rotary potentiometers are designed for the most demanding control and measurement systems. Used extensively in motorsport for throttle and gearbox control, steering angle measurement and the monitoring systems of the chassis. The RP is available with a choice of electrical angles and mounting options.
The RVDT is a contactless angular position sensor manufactured to quality standards required for high performance, high cyclic control and measurement systems. Available with measurement angles up to +/- 80° in single and duplex designs and is primarily used in aerospace applications.
RH long life rotary position sensors are available with single, or dual outputs and up to 360° of electrical angle. Output options are analogue 0-5V. They have a 12-bit resolution (0.08°) over the measuring angle and an impressive update time of <2mS, making them ideal for dynamic control and measurement systems.
The XRT (DC RVIT) is housed in a stainless steel body and has measurement angles from 10° to 120°. The manufacturing techniques employed enables the necessary environmental protection required to provide a stable electrical output under vibration, acceleration, mechanical and thermal shock.
