R2 Rotary Position Sensor

R2 Rotary Position Sensor

The R2 Series absolute rotary position sensors are cost-effective devices to accurately determine absolute positions of rotating shafts. The R2 Series sensors can be configured for analog or PWM output.

The analog output mode provides a rail-to-rail ratiometric output with a push-pull output stage that allows the use of pull up or pull-down resistors. The analog transfer characteristic is programmable for sensing any range of angles
between 0° and 360°.

In addition to numerous standard configurations, custom output slopes and functions are avaliable. Being a non-contact device, the absolute rotary position sensor is very well suited to industrial environments.

With sensing technology housed in a rugged, reinforced nylon housing, these sensors provide a low-cost solution for demanding applications. Standard electrical protection includes reverse polarity, transient suppression and output short circuit.

Features of the R2 Rotary Position Sensor are;

• 0° to 360° Absolute Angular Position Sensing
• Analog or PWM Output
• Robust Non-Contacting Design
• Factory Programmable Analog Transfer Characteristic
• Various Angular Ranges Up To 360°
• Push-Pull Output Stage for use of Pull-Up or Pull-Down Resistor
• Reverse Polarity Protection
• 12 Bit Angular Resolution
• Operation from –40°C to 125°C
