Rotary position sensor series for harsh, critical applications
TT Electronics’ PHS family of rotary position sensors are designed to provide precision sensing in harsh environments and in critical applications where repair costs would be be high in the case of a failure. The hollow shaft single turn position sensors have been designed and built for precision, robustness, and reliability. The rotary sensors comprise three separate series: PHS04, PHS07 and PHS11. They convert angular mechanical position or the motion of a shaft or axle to an analogue or digital electrical signal and are designed for applications that require adjustments to control variable outputs such as position, speed or volume. Characteristics shared by the three series are their dust proof construction and stable output characteristics in harsh environments. A rotational angle of 360-deg is provided and wide operating temperature ranges of up to -40 to 120 °C are tolerated in the case of the PHS11. They can be used in applications such as motor drive units, 3-D printers, HVAC sensors, and medical diagnostic devices.
