Gill Sensors launched its 360-degree Blade Rotary Sensor at MTEC in February 2007. With no moving parts and a full 360-degree measurement range, the sensor is suitable for a variety of applications, including those where harsh environments would cause problems for other sensing technologies.
This innovative sensor is fully electronic, with on-board processing, providing considerable configuration flexibility. Output signals are provided in three different formats and diagnostic information is provided to assist in system fail-safe functionality.
The non-contact, two-part design uses patented inductive technology to provide a reliable, accurate output, and eliminates the need for seals or bearings to ensure long-term reliability.
At just 38mm in diameter, the sensor is simple to install; three available wiring options allow for a multitude of installation configurations. Sealed to IP67, this rotary sensor is an attractive alternative to potentiometers and RVDTs and is excellent for automotive, industrial vehicle, marine and control applications where dirt, moisture, temperature and vibration can have an adverse affect on other types of rotary sensor.
