Linear position sensor

  • 25-Oct-2010 12:49 EDT

Honeywell’s SMART (Superior Measurement, Accurate, Reliable, Thinking) position sensor, in a 225-mm linear configuration, senses the position of a magnet relative to a sensor from 0 to 225 mm. The durable, lightweight sensor features a noncontact design that eliminates mechanical failure mechanisms, reduces wear and tear, improves reliability and durability, enhances operational efficiency and safety, and minimizes downtime. Two output options include analog or digital for use in control systems requiring an RS232-type interface with a 57.6 kbits/s baud rate. The device accurately measures values down to 0.14 mm analog and 0.0035 mm digital. It installs in four steps vs. up to 14 steps for some competitive products. The sensor is used for a range of applications, from industrial uses such as valve position, material handling, plastic molding, cutting and slitting, wafer handling, and CNC machines; to aerospace and defense applications such as aircraft actuators.
