TT electronics’ Sensing and Control Division has introduced a new series of new non-contacting rotary position sensors offering up to 100 million revolutions. Designed to operate reliably in demanding conditions, the MagnePot series is available with sensing angles between 35 and 360 degrees.
Incorporating Hall effect non-contacting technology means they do not wear out, as in contacting devices, and there is no degradation of the output signal over life, making them suitable for applications where minimal maintenance is required.
The 6120 family features a bushing mount with a 7/8” diameter package and a minimum of 10 million shaft rotations. Special designs with sealed shafts and rear lids and coated electronics for protection from severe environments are also possible. A supply voltage of 5Vdc is required and the ratiometric output goes from 3% to 96% of the supply voltage.
The 6150 series offers the same electrical performance and features of the 6120 family, however the innovative servo mount package provides a rotation life of 100 million revolutions. Multiple output voltage options are also available and both families are operational from -40o to 125oC.
