Honeywell’s RTY Series Hall-effect Rotary Position Sensors provide angle monitoring in harsh transportation and industrial applications at a competitive cost. These new devices provide a cost-effective rotary position sensor solution with a variety of options (e.g., sensing range, pinout, and voltage) that allow customers to choose the configuration of the sensor to meet their specific application needs.
These products use a magnetically biased, Hall-effect integrated circuit (IC) to sense rotary movement of the actuator shaft over a set operating range. Rotation of the actuator shaft changes a magnet’s position relative to the IC. The resulting flux density change is converted to a linear output. The IC, together with conditioning and protection circuitry, and the permanent magnet, is sealed in an IP67-qualified rugged package for durability in most harsh environments.
Eight operating ranges (50°, 60°, 70°, 90°, 120°, 180°, 270° and 360°) are tolerant to over-travel and allow use in most common applications. Low voltage and high voltage versions cover an input voltage range of 4.5 Vdc to 30 Vdc. Most applications require no lever, and no brackets are necessary.
