Position Sensor

Honeywell is rounding out its SMART position sensor portfolio with the new Rotary Configuration that provides 360° non-contact angular position sensing. With this product, the company offers a position sensor that encompasses the most basic geometric configurations: lines, angles, and circles. The new sensor is durable, accurate, and cost-effective, enabling design engineers to replace an optical encoder, or to utilize a sensor instead of a resolver which can be expensive and difficult to integrate into a system. The product utilizes non-contact magnetoresistive (MR) technology to determine the object's position, which allows it to accurately sense position in dirty and harsh environments, replacing optical encoders, which utilize light to determine position, to obtain a accurate measurement. Resolvers are typically hand-wired devices with high accuracy and durability for use in incredibly precise, non-serviceable aerospace applications.
