NRH275DR

NRH275DR
Dual Redundant Output 'No Contact' Rotary Position Sensor

Penny+Giles announces a new dual redundant output, no-contact rotary position sensor with a slim, low-profile sensor housing and separate permanent magnet assembly.

NRH275DR operates from a 5Vdc (±0.5) regulated supply to each independent sensor channel, and has two independent outputs, enabling full redundancy from a very low profile 36 x 35mm package.

NRH275DR has a moulded polymer enclosure with metal mounting inserts. The encapsulated Hall-effect sensor system can withstand high shock and vibration as well as operate up to +140°C, and is protected to IP67 (dust protection and water immersion to 1m depth for 24 hours). The sensor is activated by a separate magnet - available in a choice of three magnet housing styles.

NRH275DR is designed for applications in extreme environments where space is limited.  It also allows up to ±2mm radial magnet offset, with a permissible air gap of 2-7mm between the sensor and magnet. The transmissive properties between the magnet and sensor also allow operation through non-magnetic materials.

This latest addition to the NRH family of rotary position sensors is ideal for specialist vehicle applications in extreme and hostile environments where installation space may be limited. It enables system designers to improve the safety and integrity of their control systems by using the dual independent power supply and dual output signals.

These are important for meeting Safety Integrity Level (SIL) in the IEC 61508 and EN 62061 functional safety standards, and the Performance Level (PL) in the EN ISO 13849 machine safety design standard.

RCP
Conductive Plastic Rotary Potentiometer

The RCP range of conductive plastic rotary potentiometers have been designed to provide high precision, reliability and quality and perform in severe environmental conditions.

Automated trimming of linearity and resistance by profiling of the resistive element maintains consistent high quality.
