P501 Minature Rotary Sensor


Position feedback for industrial and scientific applications
Available in any travel between 30° and 140°.



The P501 RIPS® (Miniature Rotary Inductive Position Sensor) is an affordable, durable, high-accuracy rotary sensor designed for industrial and scientific feedback applications, but requires a smaller footprint than the P500.

Like all Positek sensors, the P501 provides a linear output proportional with angle of deflection. Each unit is supplied with the output calibrated to the angle required by the customer, between 30 and 140 degrees. It is particularly suitable for OEMs seeking good sensor performance for arduous applications where space is important.

Overall performance, repeatability and stability are outstanding over a wide temperature range. The sensor has a rugged nickel plated aluminium body and integrated mounting flange. The flange has two 4.3mm by 20 degree wide slots on a 48mm pitch to simplify mounting and position adjustment. Sealing is to IP67 (boot version) and full EMC protection is built in.

Preferences

Positek offers a range of options for its standard sensors.
Each sensor is manufactured to suit each customer's preferences.
If your requirement is outside the options given below,
Positek can modify/ redesign a sensor to suit your specific requirement.
Standard options are available as below:

 

Measurement range:

Factory set to any angle from ±15° to ±70° in increments of 1°
For example, if your application requires 90° measurement
then Positek will manufacture the sensor specifically for this angular range. The sensor will measure 90° however will still rotate through 360°.
