Rotary Position Sensor RP 360-H

This sensor is designed to measure rotational movement, e.g. throttle angle, spring travel, gearbox position or steering angle.

The electronic is designed with a magnetic rotary sensor with Hall elements and digital signal processing. The angular position is provided by a two pole magnet integrated in the sensor shaft. A Hall effect sensor is disposed between two magnets in association with a movable specially formed ferromagnetic part. This is used to control flux in the sensor in order to produce a linearly varying output voltage dependent on the position.

The main benefit of this sensor is its contactless Hall effect technology and its robust design for motorsport applications. Other measurement ranges are available on request.

Installation Notes

The products of the RP series can be connected directly to most control units.

The sensor is designed with contactless Hall effect technology.

Any mounting orientation is possible.

Sensor is at mid point of electrical angle when shaft and wire exit are aligned as shown in the offer drawing.

Operating temperature range for unregulated supply: -40 to 135.7°C (9 V supply). Derate upper temperature limit by 1.7°C for every 1 V increase in supply, e.g. -40 to 100°C at 30 V.

Both rotation directions and other measurement ranges are available on request.

Please find further application hints in the offer drawing at our homepage.

Safety Note

The sensor is not intended to be used for safety related applications without appropriate measures for signal validation in the application system.
