Honeywell's cost-effective RTY series hall-effect rotary position sensors for angle monitoring in harsh environments now available from TTI, Inc.

(PresseBox) (Maisach, ) Honeywell's RTY series hall-effect rotary position sensors providing angle monitoring in harsh transportation and industrial applications at a competitive cost can now be ordered from TTI, Inc., the world's leading specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components. The devices provide a very long 35 million cycle product life

RTY series sensors use a magnetically biased, hall-effect integrated circuit to sense rotary movement of the actuator shaft over a set operating range. Rotation of the actuator shaft changes a magnet's position relative to the IC. The resulting flux density change is converted to a linear output. The IC, together with conditioning and protection circuitry, and the permanent magnet, is sealed in an IP67-qualified rugged package for durability in most harsh environments.

Eight operating ranges (50°, 60°, 70°, 90°, 120°, 180°, 270° and 360°) are tolerant to over-travel and allow use in most common applications. Low voltage and high voltage versions cover an input voltage range of 4.5 Vdc to 30 Vdc. The sensors can be used as a drop-in replacement and benefit from industry-standard AMP termination, a 32 mm mounting pitch, North American and European pinout styles, as well as a compact package.

Although most applications require no lever, a lever version is also available. The lever allows customers to reduce the number of mechanical linkages required for their application, which reduces the cost of the overall customer solution. No brackets are necessary.
