The PS2P-CON sensor creates immunity to radial and axial play on mobile shafts where significant misalignment results in poor operational performance and labour intensive maintenance programmes. It complements our  PS2P-LIN and PS2P-ARC series of air-gap non-contact linear and angular position sensors.

Designed with the sensor directly mounted onto a PCB, the innovative MTS-360 Sensor/PCB Combo package allows engineers to easily mount a fully featured rotary sensor without first having to design a printed circuit board for the sensor. The result is time-savings and convenience.
 
The MTS-360 Sensor/PCB assembly is available with or without 2.54 mm pitch connector, both easily secured with standard M3 screws.  The entire assembly measures just 35mm wide by 36mm long, allowing for applications with tight packaging constraints.  

The new MTS-360PCB Mechanical Mount sensor model incorporates all the breakthrough sensor technology performance features of the original MTS-360 by merging a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in a small size package.  The result is an extremely small fully featured rotary sensor with reliability up to 50 million cycles.   The MTS-360 relies on patented Hall effect technology to enable true non-contacting through-hole shaft sensing now using a simple three eared mounting. The standard model features a 4mm double D-flat through-hole and (3) slotted mounting holes allowing final rotational adjustment at assembly.

The PS2P-LIN linear sensors create immunity to magnet´s misalignment that negatively impacts operational performance and results in labour intensive maintenance programmes. It complements our  PS2P-CON and PS2P-ARC series of air-gap non-contact angular rotary position sensors.

Hollow shaft magnetic rotary angle and position sensor-control.


Key features
• Simple & Robust magnetic design.
• Endless rotation.
• Programmable switch output.
• Programmable Linear Transfer Characteristics
(some positive slopes & one negative slope can be programmed in the same transfer characteristic;
up to 4 programmable points; see last page).
• Self-diagnostic features.
• Over voltage protection and reverse voltage protection.


Also upon request:
• True full redundant version.

Examples of applications:
• Non-Contacting long life angle/position sensor.
• Absolute rotary position sensor
• Pedal position Sensor.
• Turn counter.
• Throttle/EGR valve and gear position sensor.
• Height & suspension sensor.
• Non-contacting potentiometer.
• Float-level sensor.
• Motor-shaft position sensor.
• Precision robotics, material handling, industrial equipment, HVAC monitoring & control, etc.

The MTS-360 provides a true breakthrough in contactless sensor technology by combining a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. The result is the smallest fully featured rotary sensor on the market with reliability up to 50 million cycles.


With its tiny size, engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their PCB without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other absolute position devices. The exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors.


This ultra-miniature Rotary Position Sensor is ideal in optical imaging stabilization and precision biomedical devices, optical zoom devices, consumer electronics, instrumentation, HVAC systems, automotive control systems, marine controls, fork lift trucks, farm equipment, cranes, low speed motor feedback, valve position sensors and robotic and automation feedback system.
