Position Sensors Measure Angular Displacement of Rotating Elements up to 120º

Providing absolute output proportional to shaft rotation over a total range of up 120º, Macro Sensors RSE 1500 series of rotary position sensors are suitable for measuring the position of quarter-turn valves, flue dampers, weir gates, dancer arm tensioners, and other applications involving fractional-turn shaft movements. These DC-operated rotary position sensors are also useful for high reliability applications such as pedal, throttle-lever, or actuator position sensing in aircraft, marine, construction, and agricultural vehicles. Although their shafts can rotate a full 360º, the RSE 1500 Series Rotary RVDT Position Sensors measure shaft angle position over a nominal range of 120º. Sensors can operate in 0° to 30°, 60°, 90°, or 120° rotation ranges. Contactless inductive technology enables these rotary position positions to offer high accuracy and repeatability with exceptional reliability. The units exhibit a linearity error of less than 0.10% of full range output while operating over temperatures from 0ºF to 185ºF (-20ºC to 85ºC).
