Completely contactless, the position sensor provides excellent repeatability, accuracy, resolution, linearity and high stability even under harsh environmental conditions. Its low profile design makes the Piher PST-360 easy to integrate in to any application with no mechanical interfaces, offering lower production line costs than other sensors. The one-piece solution contains two discrete, non-contact components: a full circle magnet and a separate electronics module. This allows an easy wrapping into any shaft, providing engineers the flexibility to be creative. With a guaranteed accuracy up to +/- 0.5% over the entire 360° travel for 50 million rotational cycles, the through-shaft sensor is not only extremely precise, but also offers a long life span. A selectable output function allows developers to choose between analogue (ratiometric & non-ratiometric), PWM, SPI and CAN SAE J1939. In addition, the sensor has a fully programmable output and the option of including a switching signal.
