SMART Position Sensor - Rotary Configuration (SPS Series) | Honeywell
The SMART Position Sensor, Rotary Configuration, is a non-contacting sensing solution for absolute position sensing with enhanced accuracy. It senses the position of a magnet relative to the sensor in a range of 0º to 360º.
Honeywell uses a patented combination of an ASIC and an array of MR sensors to accurately and reliably determine the position of a magnet collar attached to a rotating object so that the object’s position can be determined or controlled. The output and the MR sensor sequence determine the nearest pair of MR sensors to the center of the magnet location. The output of these two MR sensors is then used to determine the position of the magnet between them.
The SMART Position Sensor, Rotary Configuration, fits on a 25,4 mm [1 in] shaft. A mounting tool fixture (purchased separately) provides repeatable installation.
