ASM presents the PRDS1, a compact magnetic angle sensor in M12 housing. Only 12mm in diameter and 50mm depth it is suited to particularly compact applications where access is difficult. The complete measurement range of 0° to 360° is non contact utilising an independent magnet with an air gap between the sensor. This overcomes any connection or alignment problems often experienced if sensors have output shafts.
The sensor has a range of incremental digital outputs RS5V, RS24V and HT24V with other alternatives being continuously developed. The sensor is manufactured from stainless steel with an integral M12 thread incorporated into the M12 body giving sealing options from IP67 to IP69K. The angle sensor can be used for all applications where angle detection and angle monitoring is required, such as assembly lines, valve flap settings, packaging machines, medical equipment, etc.
