Honeywell Sensing and Control RTY Hall-Effect Rotary Position Sensors

The RTY Series Hall-Effect Rotary Position Sensors provide angle monitoring in harsh transportation and industrial applications at a competitive cost.These products use a magnetically biased, Hall-effect integrated circuit (IC) to sense rotary movement of the actuator shaft over a set operating range. Rotation of the actuator shaft changes a 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, and the permanent magnet, is sealed in an IP67-qualified rugged package for durability in most harsh environments.Eight operating ranges (50°, 60°, 70°, 90°, 120°, 180°, 270° and …
