Home » News » RTY Series: Hall-effect Rotary Position Sensors

The new RTY Series Hall-effect Rotary Position Sensors provide non-contact sensing in harsh transportation and industrial applications at a competitive cost.

These shaft activated products are available in two versions: an integral shaft with or without a Lever. The lever may allow customers to reduce the number of mechanical linkages required for their applications, which may reduce the cost of the overall customer solution.

These products use a magnetically biased, Hall-effect integrated circuit (IC) to sense rotary movement of the actuator over a set operating range. Rotation of the actuator changes the magnet’s position relative to the IC. The resulting flux density change is converted to a linear output.

The IC, together with conditioning and protection circuitry, is sealed in an IP69K-qualified rugged package for durability in most harsh Environments.

Eight operating ranges from 50° to 360° are tolerant to over-travel and allow use in most common applications. Low voltage and high voltage versions cover an input voltage range of 4.5 Vdc to 30 Vdc.
