TE Connectivity (TE) has unveiled the Macro Sensors RSE 1500 Series high-accuracy rotary position sensors for measuring the angular displacement of rotating elements such as quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves, air flow dampers, and diverter gates used in packaging and postal sorting machinery. These DC-operated rotary position sensors are also useful for high reliability applications such as pedal, throttle-lever, or actuator position sensing in aircraft, marine, construction, and agricultural vehicles.
The Macro Sensors RSE 1500 Series rotary position sensors utilize contactless inductive technology to measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of 120º with excellent accuracy and repeatability and exceptional reliability. Sensors can operate in 0° to 30°, 60°, 90°, or 120° rotation ranges. These units exhibit a linearity error of less than 0.10% of full range output, operate at temperatures from -40º F to 185º F (-40º C to 85º C) and supply a true 0 to 10 Vdc output.
Other significant features of the RS 1500-120 series rotary position sensors include:
• Servo-mount groove and pilot in sensor body
• Convenient mounting flanges available
• No slip rings or rotors to wear out
• Absolute output so no output loss after power failure
• Excellent price/performance characteristics
