Here’s a sensor that can handle the harsh or extreme environments off-highway equipment experiences. The RSX-7900 series of angle sensors provides up to IP69K ingress protection, extremely long life of more than 100 million movements and ISO13849 PL-d safety compliance in a non-contacting design.
The sensor is available in six standard measuring ranges with angles from 0 to 60° to 0 to 360° with unrestricted rotation. Resolution is 12-bit across a 4 to 20 mA output with linearity to ±1% at ≥ 90°. Repeatability is 0.2° and update rate is 5 kHz.
Single and dual redundant versions are available and the life specification is valid even under high shock and vibration conditions up to 50 and 20 g respectively. The RSX-7900 series is available with a CANopen interface.
The sensors offer anodized aluminum housing with a stainless-steel shaft for enhanced corrosion protection with salt and spray resistance. Axial and radial shaft loading is up to 300 N thanks to a double-row, angular contact ball bearing design. The 70-mm diameter sensor has a nominal length of only 35 mm and is available with a wide choice of shaft styles for maximum installation flexibility.
The RSX-7900 series angle sensors operate from 9 to 34 Vdc supply for 12 and 24 V off-highway vehicle and construction equipment applications.
