Curtiss-Wright NRH271 & NRH272 – NO-CONTACT, ROTARY POSITION SENSOR
Curtiss-Wright Introduces New Family of Rotary Position Sensors.
A choice of power supply options are available – one for connection to a regulated 5V supply and the other to a varying voltage in the range of 9-30V, such as a vehicle’s battery. The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) NRH271 range has a single output, while the NRH272 has a second, redundant output. In addition, the NRH272 contains two completely independent measuring circuits, each with its own power supply, meaning high-performing, safety-critical applications can easily be addressed. (View NRH271 & NRH272 product specifications & brochures here).
Both contain onboard diagnostic functions that mean the outputs can be put into safe, pre-defined states should an internal sensor error be detected. The versatile, factory-programmable electronics can be easily set to one of two analog voltage output ranges or one of three PWM frequencies. In addition, the polarities of each of the analog outputs can be independently set.
A fully-encapsulated design offers exceptional levels of performance with respect to water and dust, shock, vibration and temperature, meaning the sensor is ideal for use in hostile, on- and off-highway vehicle environments.
Connection options are industry-standard AMP Superseal (IP68 rated) or Deutsch DT04 series (IP67 rated) connectors, or simple flying leads for customer termination. The sensor can also be supplied with a protective conduit for the cabling.
