By combining single turn angle detection and a seperate turn detection function this sensor is able to measure angles across multiple turns providing high resolution and accuracy. The sensor can detect turns in an unpowered state and stores turns in non-volatile memory, it is a true power on angle sensor in a very compact size.
The sensor uses non-contacting technology ensuring a very long life. By using non-contacting technology the sensor also has a high tolerance to external effects like shock, vibration etc.
The housing is made of a special high grade temperature resistant plastic material. Elongated slots
allow simplicity in mounting together with ease of mechanical adjustment.
The special backlash-free push-on coupling ensures extremely quick and easy installation. The sensor is
not sensitive to either dirt or dampnes. Electrical connection is made via a shielded cable which is potted into the housing.
With the RSM2800, for the first time a compact and non-contacting solution is available that can replace costly gear drive sensors and help to reduce total system cost.
Applications can be found in many areas like printing machines, drive and steering systems, wire length sensors, gate and door drives, in mobile applications such as lifts, in the paper industry, in robotics and as a replacement for wirewound potentiometers or encoders.
