Penny and Giles has expanded the output options of its rugged SRH501P and SRH502P contactless rotary position sensors for use in factory automated systems and process control machinery.

With their newly offered support for 0 to 10V DC analogue voltage output, a signal commonly used by machine controllers and recording instruments, the rugged Hall-effect-based SRH501P and SRH502P sensors significantly expand their application range.

Both the single-output SRH501P and the dual-output SRH502P feature a programmable sensor.

Designed for use in extreme environments, these sensors are based on contactless Hall effect technology, which enables them to operate in high-dither vibration conditions with no deterioration of the sensing element.

With the 0-10V DC output option, the sensors can operate from a 13.5-30V DC unregulated power supply.

They are available factory programmed with any one of 341 different angles from 20 to 360deg in 1deg increments.

The SRH501P and SRH502P provide 12 bit resolution (0.025 per cent) over the selected measuring range.

OEMs can also specify the measurement range and output in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction.

The dual output SRH502P can be set up to have independent measurement ranges for each output channel.

These sensors are easy to install and feature maximum output signal noise rated at 1mV rms, so they require no additional signal filtering on the output signal.

Both sensors are mechanically interchangeable with the Penny and Giles SRS880 and SRH880 rotary sensors, enabling existing users to quickly and simply upgrade to a greater level of control.

The sensors are offered in a marine-grade cast aluminum housing with 87.5mm-diameter flange and 12mm-diameter shaft.

An optional lever arm kit is also available and can be attached to the sensor’s operating shaft.

This expanded output versions of the SRH501P and SRH502P are supplied with a screened multi-core connecting cable (option S), available in lengths of one, five or 10 metres.

They are sealed to IP69K for increased protection in harsh environments and to prevent the ingress of dust, water and pressure jets.

The sensors are designed with an operating temperature range of -40 to 115C.
