Rotary position sensors

April 9, 2013
The RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors provide absolute rotary position.

The RFC4800 Series of touchless rotary angle sensors provide absolute rotary position. The sensors use a magnetic pickup for a touchless measurement range of 0 to 360°. Key specifications include 4 to 20-mA current output, sealed to the IP67 standard, 12-bit resolution, and independent linearity of ±0.5 %.

Switch characteristics include two pnp positive switched outputs, switching-zone width is user programmable, 50 years data retention, edge width of switch function is ›0.1° and accuracy of switch edges is ±1°. A magnetic marker mounts to a shaft on the application up to 25 mm from sensor.

The sensors withstand shock and vibration up to 100 g/20 g and operate at –40 to 85°C.
