Part no.: Positek P501
• 28.3mm diameter body
• Analog voltage and current outputs
• Up to 0.1% linearity
• Measure up to 140 deg range
The P501 is a miniature, affordable, durable, high-accuracy rotary sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications, but requires a smaller footprint than the P500.
Like all Positek sensors, the P501 provides a linear output proportional with angle of deflection. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 30 and 140 degrees. It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications where space is important.
Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged nickel plated aluminium body and integrated mounting flange. The flange has two 4.5mm by 20 degree wide slots on a 38mm pitch to simplify mounting and position adjustment. Sealing is to IP67 (boot version) and full EMC protection is built in.
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. Another use […]
For maximum endurance and payload transportation capacity many UAV manufacturers turn to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered flight. Electric propulsion has its place, but for maximum energy density batteries are not currently at the level of modern fossil fuels.
Capacitive rotary encoders such as those from Netzer Precision are known for their low profile, high noise immunity and excellent accuracy. As a result, they are an excellent choice for applications such as camera systems, radar, slip-rings and robotic joints. Often times in these tasks the encoder is used for velocity feedback, ensuring a smooth […]
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?
