Novotechnik's P2500-M series of angle sensors are designed for a range of applications and extreme environments such as ship controls, off-highway and construction vehicles. Courtesy: NovotechnikNovotechnik’s P2500-M series of angle sensors provide redundancy for those applications requiring fail-safe angle measurement. The P2500-M Series angle sensors operate up to a maximum of 42 Vdc supply and are designed for a range of applications and extreme environments such as ship controls, off-highway and construction vehicles. The P2500-M Series is available in two or three sections and three measuring ranges with angles from 0 to 120, 0 to 240 or 0 to 345 degrees with unrestricted continuous rotation. Repeatability is 0.01-deg and maximum rotational speed is 2,000 RPM. Independent linearity is to 0.3% of full scale and interlinearity between sections is factory calibrated to within ±1 %FS. Life specification of 50 million movements is valid even under high shock and vibration conditions up to 50 and 20 g respectively. The P2500-M Series features anodized aluminum housing with a stainless steel shaft for enhanced corrosion protection with salt and spray resistance.
