New Yorker Electronics announces Vishay Intertechnology’s release of the new miniature position sensor with a small 12.7 mm outer diameter. According to Vishay, the sensor delivers higher accuracy and resolution than similar devices of the same size, while offering increased reliability and durability for harsh military and industrial operating environments. In addition, its plug-and-play operation eliminates the need for calibration.
The Vishay MCB RAME012 rotational absolute magnetic encoder uses advanced contactless technology to achieve greater than 11-bit accuracy and 14-bit resolution, while maintaining robustness against external magnetic fields, airborne pollution, vibration, mechanical shock and changes in temperature. The device features a useful electrical angle of 360° and works over a temperature range of -40° C to +105° C.
The stainless-steel body design of the RAME012 — as well as its on-axis design, slim diameter and light weight (< 11g) — make it suitable for applications where little space is available, but an angular position needs to be detected with high accuracy. The device is available in a single-turn variant featuring an SSI output signal, with other mechanical and electrical interfaces also available on request.
With its SSI output and excellent performance / size ratio, the position sensor released today offers a perfect replacement for potentiometers in missile guidance systems, gimbals for optical balls and missile seekers, positioning systems for small industrial actuators (servo drives), and the multi-dimensional mechanical measurement of surfaces using 3D probes.
The miniature position sensors are suitable for harsh environments, military applications and industrial applications
Samples and production quantities of the RAME012 are available now, with a lead time of 20 weeks for larger orders. As a franchised distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies Vishay MCB Power Thick Film, Wirewound, Heating and other Resistors as well as Angular and Linear Potentiometers.
