Rotary Position Sensor Is Completely Non-contacting
Cherry's AN9 series dual-output rotary position sensor is electrically and physically non-contacting, making it appropriate for applications where high reliability and uncertain physical tolerances are involved. Its dual output design allows a connected controller to diagnose potential problems in the sensing system. The sensor output is programmable, but it is available in standard output ranges from 0-45 degrees to 0-360 degrees. Its non-contacting nature means that unlimited rotations are possible. Designed for automotive and off-road environments, the sensor is also sealed to IP68 for resistance to water immersion. The AN9 eliminates the most common cause of rotary position sensor performance problems by removing the mechanical interface between rotating shaft and sensor. In this design, a rotating member mates to a separate magnetic actuator. This means that mis-alignment or changes in the shaft position will not physically impact the sensor.
