Smart position sensor

17 December 2009

Honeywell has introduced the Smart Position Sensor, 75 mm Linear Configuration, the most accurate linear position sensor available in the industry (0,05 mm [0.002 in]), enabling highly accurate motion control, and improving operation efficiency and safety. Its simple, non-contact design eliminates mechanical failure mechanisms, reducing wear and tear, improving reliability and durability, and minimizing downtime.

"SMART" stands for Superior Measurement, Accuracy, Reliability, and Thinking. The Smart Position Sensor can essentially think for itself. It uses a patented combination of an ASIC and an array of magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to determine the position of a magnet attached to a moving object.

Sealed packaging allows robustness in most harsh environments such as shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, salt water, and dusty or rough terrain. Installation is simplified to four simple steps versus up to 14 steps for some competitive products, reducing set-up costs.

The Smart Position Sensor replaces multiple sensor and switch components that competitive products often require, eliminating extra wiring, connections, and external components, therefore reducing design, installation, and supply chain complexity. Its built-in redundancy and self-diagnostics provide additional safety benefits and reduce equipment downtime.
