Rotary inductive sensor has 360-degree angular measurement for outdoor applications

Turck’s inductive analog sensors provide 360-degree angular measurement by using resistance inductive capacitance measuring technology.


TURCK Rotary Inductive SensorTurck produces rotary inductive sensors, specifically, a line of inductive analog sensors that provide 360-degree angular measurement. The rotary inductive sensors utilize resistance inductive capacitance (RLC) measuring technology, rather than a traditional magnetic positioning element—delivering complete immunity to EMC interference.

Turck rotary inductive sensors are IP67 rated, with a temperature range of -40 to 70 °C, making the devices perfect for measuring the angle of solar panels, wind turbine blade position, crane position, and other outdoor applications. The sensor and its positioning element are designed as separate pieces, allowing the positioning element to be mounted in a variety of unique ways—including directly onto a rotating shaft—without experiencing the wear common to these types of sensors.
