One angle sensor for different angles of rotation
The new SPOT25S Hall-effect single-turn rotary encoder with an analogue output is programmed directly by the customer on the application using a DIP switch. Only one angle sensor for different angles and directions of rotation is required for commissioning in the field. This reduces manufacturing costs, simplifies logistics and optimises cycle times. Thanks to its compact case diameter of 25 millimetres, the angle sensor is particularly well-suited for use in drive units for position feedback. This, in combination with its long service life, translates into excellent value for money.
The SPOT25S detects angles from 0..20° to 0..360° with an absolute resolution of 12 bit at 360°. A direction switch defines the direction of rotation (CW/CCW) and can be changed after programming. Thanks to its compact case diameter of 25 millimetres, the angle sensor is particularly well-suited for use in drive units for position feedback. As a replacement to a potentiometer, the contactless measuring principle of the SPOT25S enables secure, wear-free operation and thereby increases the availability of the entire system.
The high-end polymer bearings support average rotating speeds up to 3,000 revolutions per minute and have a service life of >100 million shaft revolutions. The long service life of the angle sensor can be traced back to two design features. The magnetic Hall-effect sensor works without any deterioration over time, while the polymer plain bearings are designed for over 100 million revolutions.
