Honeywell Position SensorHoneywell’s SMART position sensor portfolio now includes the Rotary Configuration that provides 360-degree, non-contact angular position sensing. This sensor encompasses the most basic geometric configurations: lines, angles and circles. It is designed to be highly 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 SMART Position Sensor 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. The sensor is designed to measure values down to 0.01 degrees. Its automotive-grade potting makes it more resistant to vibration, shock, and extreme temperatures, improving reliability and allowing for use in a variety of tough applications. – sensing.honeywell.com
