Rotary Position Sensor RP 100 twin

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

A throttle rotation moves an internal slider (wiper) on a resistive element, which is supplied with voltage. Thus voltage proportional to the angle can be measured. The housing and the bearings are made of high temperature resistant plastic. The mounting plate is protected with a metal cover to ensure a good fixation. The sensor is fitted in a shrink down boot for additional protection.

The main benefit of this sensor is the extremely high reliability through the redundant sensor design.
