One sensor manufacturer has a new catalog with a range of rotary position sensors applicable to the wind and solar industries. ASM Sensors, Inc. has included their Posirot sensors, as well as their single and dual axis inclinometers, Positilt.
ASM says its Posirots use a permanent magnet to translate the angular position to the sensing element, while the PRAS/PRDS series uses an absolute, non-contact magnetic measurement technology. Furthermore, the PMIS series consists of an increment encoder with a MR-read head and a permanent magnet wheel with multiple magnetic poles. The PMIS series also offers high resolution models that yield up to 300k+ pulses per revolution.
Finally, the manufacturer says Positilt inclinometers are based on MEMS technology, which is known for its high accuracy, reliability, and stability. These inclinometers are also available in rugged, stainless steel housings to ensure a long life even under extreme environmental conditions.
