Curtiss-Wright NRH305DR

No-Contact, Rotary Position Sensor, 5Vdc, Electrical Output Span Correspond to Rotations of 20° to 360°.

The Curtiss-Wright (Product Brand: Penny & Giles) NRH300 product family is a range of no-contact, Rotary Position Sensors that offer the optimal combination of performance, safety, and cost.

The Curtiss-Wright (Penny & Giles) NRH305DR utilizes proven Hall effect sensing technology in a low-profile (8mm) housing with a separate magnet for true non-contact sensing. The electrical output span can be set to correspond to 0rotations of 20° to 360°, and the positional information is determined by the angle of the supplied magnet relative to the sensor body.

  • No-contact, Hall-effect technology
  • Wear-free – unlimited mechanical life
  • Simple mounting, low-profile design
  • Measurement angle 20-360°
  • 5V or 9-30V supply options
  • Single or dual redundant outputs
  • Analog output – 0.5-4.5V or 0.2-4.8V
  • PWM output – 244 Hz, 500Hz or 1,000 Hz
  • Fail-safe outputs
  • Sealing to IP69K
  • Flying Leads

The maximum air gap between magnet and sensor is 8mm, while concentric offsets of up to 2mm can be tolerated with minimal impact on output linearity. The magnet can be supplied in a convenient carrier, housed in a bolt, like a plug or loose.

Innovative circuit design allows the NRH300DP to be powered from a regulated 5V supply or a varying voltage in the range of 9-30v, such as a vehicle’s battery.
