• Up to 0.1% linearity
• 16-160 deg range; for <16 deg see P502
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.
Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications between a master (i.g. controller) and a slave (i.g. sensor).
Despite their perceived simplicity, potentiometers can still be an appropriate option in today’s ever-complicated automation industry. Fundamentally a variable resistor, modern potentiometers also offer more traditional outputs such as voltage and current which are common to more expensive sensors.
