Automated Control and ASM introduce the PRDS1, an extremely compact magnetic angle sensor that sets new standards for size and accuracy. Providing wear-free angle measurement over a range of up to 360 degrees, the PRDS1 sensor is the ideal solution for machinery applications where accuracy and trouble-free maintenance are critical.
Measuring only 12 mm in diameter and 50 mm in depth, the PRDS1 is suited to applications where access is difficult. By utilising an independent target magnet that provides an air gap between it and the sensor, the complete measuring range of up to 0° to 360° is obtained in a totally non-contact manner. This overcomes any connection or alignment problems often experienced if sensors with connecting shafts are used.
The PRDS1 has a range of incremental digital outputs available and is manufactured from stainless steel. An integral M12 thread incorporated into the M12 body provides sealing options from IP67 to IP69K.
The extremely compact designed PRDS1 angle sensor can be used for all applications where angle detection and monitoring is required, such as assembly lines, valve positioning, packaging machines, medical equipment, etc.
