Positek P505

Part no.: Positek P505

Key Features

• 19mm diameter body

• Analog voltage and current outputs

• 0.25% linearity

• Measure up to 160 deg range

P505 with its 19mm dia body is a miniature, high accuracy rotary position sensor designed for industrial, automotive and scientific feedback applications. Like all Positek sensors the P505 is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle specified by the customer, between 15 and 160 degrees.The electronics are all fully integrated, no external signal conditioning is required. The sensor provides a linear output proportional with angle of rotation. There is a small machined registration mark to identify the calibrated mid point.

The P505 is well suited to OEMs where good sensor performance and compact housing is important.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The P505 has a anodised aluminum flange, stainless steel body and shaft for a long service life and excellent environmental resistance. The sensor is easy to install with flange or servo mounting options, it also offers a range of electrical options. Sealing is IP67 and full EMC protection built in.

What is a multiturn rotary encoder?

A multiturn rotary encoder is a sensor that measures the angle of rotation of a shaft, as well as the number of complete revolutions that the shaft has made. This is in contrast to a single-turn encoder, which only measures the angle of rotation, 0 – 360°. Multiturn encoders are used in a variety of applications where it is important to track the position of a moving object, such as in machine tools, robotics, and automation systems.

Accuracy, Resolution and Repeatability

There are several key terms that are critical to specifying the optimal position sensor for a given application. This application note defines these key terms and how they relate to the sensor’s role in the overall system performance. It is important to consider that precision is very much a system issue and can be dominated by mechanical errors such as eccentricity. This paper discusses the most significant mechanical error for rotary applications (eccentricity) and presents eccentricity tolerant position sensor solutions.

Torque Measurement with Angle Sensors

As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.

Sensors As Tough as You Are

If your environment is dirty, hot, wet, or corrosive your requirements may have some similarities with that of the construction industry.
