360° angle sensor for rotary actuators

09 July 2013

Turck Banner has introduced an interference immune angle measuring principle for the optimised detection of valve and flap positions. Unlike with conventional dual sensors, the user is able to select the switch points as required from the entire rotation range from 0 to 360°, eliminating the need for time consuming setting and readjustment of the actuating element.

The process connection on all the modules is implemented via a terminal chamber or standard M12x1 male connector. Turck’s RI sensors do not detect angle positions with a magnetic positioning element, but by means of an inductive resonance coupling circuit. This makes the sensor absolutely immune to magnetic fields, such as those generated by large motors. The robust design of the sensor, sealing and high degree of protection, help it to supply precise signals over long operating periods.
