Magnetic Angle Sensor for Automated Applications

Elmhurst, IL — ASM introduces with PRAS26 an extension of its product series of angle sensors for automated applications. This product line offers an absolute output signal over the entire measurement range from 0° to 360° is based on an external position magnet.

A constant wear-free operation is ensured by use of an external position magnet. In addition, the housing is made of heat-resistant materials such as thermoplastic and epoxy glass fiber.

The flat housing with protection class IP67 is only 9.5 mm high and is therefore suitable for space-saving installation in compact automated machines and systems. Completely encapsulated electronics withstand strong shocks, vibration and moisture penetration.

The sensor is equipped with the analog outputs 0.5 ... 4.5 V, 0.5 ... 10V or 4 ... 20mA. With a favorable price-performance ratio and the low profile of the PRAS26 series it is best suited for a variety of OEM applications.

The ASM product range includes POSIWIRE® cable extension position sensors, POSITAPE® tape extension position sensors, POSICHRON® magnetostrictive position sensors, POSIROT® magnetic angle sensors, POSITILT® MEMS inclinometers and POSIMAG® magnetic encoders.

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. With 30 years of experience in serving all sectors of industry, ASM sensors has set industry standards in position measurement by providing innovative products to help automate processes and to increase safety in the workplace.

ASM Sensors, Inc. has its global headquarters in Moosinning, Germany near Munich which is ISO 9001:2008 certified and is where both standard products and customized solutions are manufactured. ASM products are sold worldwide through subsidiaries, sales offices and a network of representatives.
