MagnePot 8150 Series position sensors deliver over 10m shaft rotations

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

TT Electronics has introduced its MagnePot 8150 Series of high-performance multi-turn non-contacting rotary position sensors. The 8150 Series is designed to operate over a minimum of 10million shaft rotations with no signal output degradation. They are suitable for high-reliability markets including industrial, medical and aviation/aerospace.

Units are available in a choice of three, five or ten turns, each powered via a 5Vdc supply voltage. The ratiometric output range is from 4% to 96% of supply with a 12mA maximum current rating. MagnePot 8150 Series models also feature ±0.50% independent linearity as standard, with optional improvement to ±0.25%. Standard operating temperature range is -40 to 125°C.

Additional device options include alternative output voltages, servo mounts, non-linear outputs, IP50 or IP66 ingress protection, and severe environment versions. Severe service models further incorporate sealed shafts and rear lids.

Typical applications for the MagnePot 8150 Series include industrial joystick controls; factory and laboratory automation; advanced manufacturing; robotic positioning; motion control feedback; medical diagnostic equipment positioning; aircraft flight and panel controls; and vision system positioning feedback.
