You can customize RTY series Hall-effect rotary position sensors to meet application needs. These sensors have non-contact operation and low torque to reduce wear. The integrated reverse polarity protection offers security against installation errors. Industry-standard AMP termination, 32 mm mounting pitch, North American and European pinout styles, and the compact package provide easier drop-in replacement in existing applications. The RTY series uses a magnetically biased, integrated circuit to sense rotary movement of the actuator shaft. Rotating the actuator shaft changes a magnet’s position relative to the integrated circuit. The resulting flux density change is converted to a linear output. The integrated circuit with the conditioning and protective circuitry, and the permanent magnet is sealed in an IP67-qualified package for durability in most harsh environments.
