Rotary Position Sensor RPS-F

This sensor is designed to measure rotational movement of throttle position.

The electrical circuit is designed with a magnetic rotary sensor using a Hall element and digital signal processing; sensor output is ratiometric. The angular position is provided by a two pole magnet integrated in the sensor shaft.

The main benefit of this sensor is its contactless Hall effect technology and its robust design for motorsport applications which includes fully redundant power and ground.

Installation Notes

The products of the RP series can be connected directly to most control units.

The sensor is designed with contactless Hall effect technology.

Any mounting orientation is possible.

Sensor is at mid point of electrical angle when shaft and wire exit are aligned as shown in the offer drawing.

Please find further application hints in the offer drawing at our homepage.

Safety Note

The sensor is not intended to be used for safety related applications without appropriate measures for signal validation in the application system.
