Piher Intros Tiny Rotary Position Sensor
Rotary position sensor with integral PCB.
Chicago, IL — Piher Sensors and Controls has introduced the MTS-360 Mechanical Mount Rotary Position Sensor with integral PCB for fast and easy mounting. Designed with the sensor directly mounted onto a PCB, the innovative MTS-360 Sensor/PCB Combo package allows engineers to easily install a fully featured rotary sensor without first having to design a printed circuit board for the sensor. The result is time-savings and convenience, and simplified (mechanical) installation.

The MTS-360 Sensor/PCB assembly is available with either 6 pin (dual output) or 3 pin (single output) Molex 90119 Series mating connectors. The PCB / Sensor assembly can be easily secured with three standard M3 screws. The entire assembly measures just 35mm wide by 36mm long and 7.5mm high, allowing for applications with tight packaging constraints.

The MTS-360 relies on patented Hall Effect technology to enable true non-contacting through-hole shaft sensing. The standard model has a 4mm double D-flat through-hole and three slotted mounting holes allowing final rotational adjustment at assembly.

Performance features include electrical angles up to 360° with no dead band and linearity as low as ±0.5 percent. Rated for use at -40 to +125°C environments, the sensor can operate up to 333 RPM and can be programmed with full scale output with angles as narrow as 15 or as wide as 360°.
