Sensor catalog

  • 17-May-2011 03:59 EDT


ASM Sensors offers an improved catalog featuring a range of Posirot rotary position sensors as well as Positilt single- and dual-axis inclinometers. The Posirot family uses a permanent magnet to translate the angular position to the sensing element, while the PRAS/PRDS series features an absolute, noncontact magnetic measurement technology. The company's PMIS series consists of an increment encoder with a magnetoresistive-read head and a permanent magnet wheel with multiple magnetic poles to offer high-resolution models that yield more than 300,000 pulses per revolution. The Positilt family of inclinometers is based on micro-electrical-mechanical systems technology, known for improved accuracy, reliability, and stability. Inclinometers also are available in rugged, stainless-steel housings to ensure long life under extreme environmental conditions.

Just as engineers of consumer vehicles are being asked to shorten development cycles and improve performance, reliability, and safety, so are developers of off-highway vehicles, such as construction equipment and agricultural machinery.
Skogforsk (the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden) has funded a KTH research initiative intended to help improve the suspension of forestry machines with the goal of achieving significant productivity improvements. KTH’s mission is to streamline the design process by validating the capability to simulate the operation of forestry machines under real-world operating conditions.
The POSIWIRE sensor WS21 from ASM Sensors is designed for measuring ranges up to 20,000 mm.
The growing role of electronics and software is altering the design process, requiring a greater focus on validation and verification, particularly to meet the stringent demands of off-highway environments.
