Multiturn Hall-Effect Position Sensor
The PSCM is a non-contacting multiturn rotary position sensor based on Hall-effect technology and a cost-effective replacement for absolute encoders. It is also perfectly suited to substitute wire actuated encoders by translating a linear movement into angular position.
In the event of a power loss, the sensor will preserve the last measured position. This compact and rugged sensor is configurable with angular ranges between 720 and 11.520 degrees (up to 32 revolutions) and support for low and high-voltage power supply. Connector assemblies are available on request.
The high level of ingress protection, vibration and temperature resistance makes it well suited for extreme environments of industrial, off-highway and transportation applications.
