ASM Sensors, Inc.
650 W. Grand Ave.
Elmhurst, IL, 60126

Press release date: November 1, 2012

Elmhurst, IL – Sensor specialist ASM presents the PRDS1, an extremely compact magnetic angle sensor in M12 housing and sets new standards. The angle is measured without contact and wear-free over the entire measuring range up to 360° via a separate magnet.

From the POSIROT® family of magnetic angle sensors ASM presents an especially compact sensor. Only 12 mm in diameter and 50 mm depth the PRDS1 is suited to particularly compact applications where access is difficult. The complete measurement range of 0° to 360° is totally non contact utilising an independent magnet with an air gap between the sensor. This overcomes any connection or alignment problems often experienced if sensors have output shafts.

The PRDS1 has a range of incremental digital outputs RS5V, RS24V and HT24V with other alternatives being continuously developed. The sensor is manufactured from stainless steel with an integral M12 thread incorporated into the M12 body giving sealing options from IP67 to IP69K.

The extremely compact designed PRDS1 angle sensor can be used for all applications where angle detection and angle monitoring is required, such as assembly lines, valve flap settings, packaging machines, medical equipment, etc.

ASM Sensors, Inc. is a leading company in the development, manufacturing and marketing of linear and rotary position sensors as well as tilt sensors for use in industrial and commercial applications.
