  • How To Substantially Reduce Encoder Cost While Gaining Functionality With Multi-Turn Rotary Position Sensors
    Many applications require rotation counters that can measure angles greater than 360º. However the low-cost 10-turn potentiometers most design engineers are familiar with can't always meet user requirements for resolution and reliability. As an alternative, optical absolute encoders are too
  • Position Sensors and Position-Sensing Instruments
    resistive, optical triangulation, photoelectric, position displacement, ultrasonic, and variable resistance technology sensors. Position-sensing instruments also include laser micrometers, linear encoders, linear potentiometers, and linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs). Rotary position
  • Latest World Touring Car and Le Mans Prototype Use Penny + Giles Sealed Rotary Sensors
    Penny + Giles is supplying its SRS280 rotary position sensors to Ray Mallock Ltd (RML) a motorsport and automotive technology company that provides bespoke design, engineering and manufacturing solutions.
  • Finding the right sensor for linear displacement
    outage as before. Conversely, incremental sensors, such as encoders, cannot make meaningful measurements after power outages until they are rezeroed or returned to a "home" position. Although most of the sensing technologies discussed here can be used in rotary and angular-position sensing, we
  • No problem with noncontacting sensors
    Invensys Sensor Systems, El Paso, Tex., (Clarostat Div.) has developed a rotary Hall-effect position sensor, the HRS100, that cuts cost by integrating all compensation circuitry into a single factory-programmed sensor ASIC. Resistive potentiometers or "pots " have long been used for rotary position

  • Closed-loop motor control: An introduction to rotary resolvers and encoders
    ), a satellite (positions satellite to lock on to a specific signal), or factory floor machinery (a pick-and-place machine), the position feedback sensor is an intrinsic element in the total motor-control system. There are many types of motor control, but this article discusses two that implement an analog
  • Industrial encoder integrates bearing and sensor functions
    for automotive ABS applications, eliminates the need for an extra gear-tooth sensor or rotary-pulse generator. Simple bolt-on installation requires no extra brackets or couplings, and the air gap reportedly can't go out of adjustment. The sensors are built on Fafnir Survivor PT bearing platforms, which
