Rugged position sensors for numerous applications

Paul Boughton

Now available from Aerco, the new Honeywell SMART position sensor is one of the most durable and adaptable non-contact sensors available. Providing accurate, safe and efficient motion control, the range is ideal for applications in the industrial, transportation, medical, military and aerospace industries.

The sensors are small and lightweight and have a simple non-contact design that eliminates mechanical failure, reduces wear and improves machine reliability. They are absolute position sensors that sense the position of a magnet relative to the sensor using a combination of an ASIC and an array of magneto-resistive sensors. 

Available in linear, arc or rotary configurations, SMART sensors are lightweight, rugged, easy to install and are offered in a wide range of sizes and sensing distances. They are shock- and vibration-resistant and sealed to IP67 and IP69. An in-built self-diagnostic feature ensures machine downtime is reduced to a minimum.
