P500 is a durable, affordable, high accuracy rotary sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications. The P500, like all Positek sensors, is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 16 and 160 degrees. The sensor provides a linear output proportional with angle of rotation. There is a machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.
It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications such as industrial machinery where cost is important.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The P500 has a rugged stainless steel body and shaft for long service life and environmental resistance. The mounting flange is anodised aluminum. The sensor is easy to install with flange or servo mounting options, it also offers a wide range of electrical options. Sealing is IP65 or IP67 depending on selected cable or connector options, and full EMC protection built in.
All absolute rotary encoders have a rotor which is attached to the rotating shaft and a stator which is attached to the housing holding the shaft. The interaction of these two components produces a measure of the shafts rotational angle. The most important parameters of absolute rotary sensors are resolution, accuracy and tolerance to misalignment of the rotational axes.
Positek’s portfolio includes a range of high-accuracy linear sensors specifically designed for use in submersible applications. Made from marine grade stainless steel and offering the reliability that is not possible from a submersible LVDT or linear potentiometer, our sensors have served a host of different industries such as wastewater and offshore oil drilling.

Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications especially, rotary encoders. It is a point-to-point connection from a master (e.g. PLC, microcontroller or other control systems) to a slave (e.g. the rotary encoder).
All new Gill level sensors come with a secondary output function which operates as a high or low level switch. So what is it and how do I use an Open Collector switch output?
