Penny & Giles TPS280DP

5Vdc (and 9-30Vdc), Contactless, Throttle Position, Dual Output.

The Penny & Giles TPS280DP is a variant of the popular, contactless rotary position sensor range, which uses a factory programmable non-contact, Hall effect sensor system.Electrically interchangeable with potentiometers the TPS280DP is designed as the modern alternative throttle position sensor (TPS) to rotary potentiometers fitted on high-performance race car and motorcycle induction systems.Replacing a potentiometer with the TPS280DP will eliminate premature failure due to electrical noise – caused by potentiometer wear. TPS280DP is life tested to 30-million cycles (60 million operations), more than NINE TIMES that of a potentiometer in this application.

TPS280DP is mechanically interchangeable with most existing throttle position sensors using 32mm mounting centers and is designed to interface with most common throttle body D-type spindles. The sensor has a choice of 200 or 500mm cable lengths, with or without an MSS4P Mini Sure-Seal connector fitted to the FDR-25 sheathed spec 55A cable. With sealing to IP69K, it is also able to withstand high pressure wash-downs.
