Play Resistant Arc Position Sensor
Piher Sensing Systems’ PS2P-ARC arc angular sensor creates immunity to radial and axial play on pivot joints where misalignment result in poor operational performance and labor intensive maintenance programs.
The magnet is attached to the rotating parts of a pivot joint and the electronics module to the chassis (or vice versa). Without the need for any gears or linkages the sensor is easy to mount thereby delivering additional cost reduction on the production line and improving product reliability and durability during its lifetime.
The PS2P-ARC measures changes in position relative to the sensor by detecting the movement of a sinusoidal magnetized arc magnet that is located in a separate housing and is only sensitive to the flux density co-planar with the IC surface.
The PS2P series is complemented by touchless linear (PS2P-LIN) and angular (PS2P-CON) position sensors. All sensors of the series will deliver the same level of precision and stability throughout their lifetime as on the first day they are installed – despite extremes of vibration, shock, temperature and contamination. As absolute sensors they will not loose the values even after a power failure.
