Rugged single/dual output rotary position sensors support 0-10Vdc analogue voltage output
31 August 2010
Penny and Giles has expanded the output options of its rugged Hall effect SRH501P and SRH502P contactless rotary position sensors to support 0 to 10Vdc analogue voltage output, a signal commonly used by machine controllers and recording instruments.
Both the single output SRH501P and the dual output SRH502P feature a programmable sensor, based on contactless Hall effect technology, which enable them to operate in high dither vibration conditions with no deterioration of the sensing element. Their resistance to shock and vibration allow them to be used for many machine position monitoring applications.
With the 0-10Vdc output option, the sensors can operate from a 13.5-30Vdc unregulated power supply. They are available factory-programmed with any one of 341 different angles from 20 degrees up to 360 degrees, in one degree increments. The SRH501P and SRH502P provide 12 bit resolution (0.025%) over the selected measuring range.
OEMs can also specify the measurement range and output in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction. The dual output SRH502P can be set up to have independent measurement ranges for each output channel.
Both sensors are mechanically interchangeable with the Penny + Giles SRS880 and SRH880 rotary sensors, enabling existing users to quickly and simply upgrade their installations.
