Curtiss-Wright’s WM-830

48.5° Non-Contact, Rotary Position Sensor.

The Curtiss-Wright’s  WM-830 is a cost-effective rotary sensor utilizing proven Hall-effect technology to ensure accurate and reliable measurement of angular position. Mechanical engagement with the rotating portion of the sensor is via a slotted cavity, while the electrical output span corresponds to a rotation of 48.5° . Operation is from a 5V supply, typically derived from the electronic control unit to which the sensor is connected. Dual on-board circuits are electrically isolated from each other, so providing truly independent voltage outputs – one at 50% the level of the other – thereby allowing the host electronics to detect output errors. Further integrity is provided as the outputs enter pre-defined states in the event of connection errors to the sensor.

PWM output options are also available on request.
