ASM launches the PRAS5 range of Heavy Duty Rotary Position Sensors with rugged housing for harsh environments
Heavy duty applications require products from companies that are reputed for their quality, reliability and attention to detail. This is why ASM has developed the NEW range of PRAS5 Heavy Duty Hall Effect Sensors with a measuring range of 0 - 360° and sealing up to IP69K. Automated Control Engineering (A.C.E.) are the exclusive national distributor for the new PRAS5 range.
Whenever a rotary sensor is to be used for a “Harsh Outside” application such as “Mobile Hydraulics”, “Wind Turbines” or “Offshore Applications” the sensor is expected to be impervious to the environmental conditions as well as the harsh application requirements. These include wide temperature fluctuations and sealing against water and debris.
This latest range from ASM, the PRAS5 family is available with either a stainless steel or aluminium housing which has been designed to allow the sensor to run continuously under these demanding conditions. The PRAS5 incorporates “Hall” sensing technology and is available with a 10mm output shaft or alternatively magnetically coupled via an independent magnet giving a true non contact measuring system. M8 fixings meet the heavy duty installation requirements with a temperature capability from - 40ºC to an optional + 120ºC. The PRAS5 can be ordered in angular increments of 15º and the rugged design has been tested for 100g/11ms shock and 20g vibration.
A wide range of electrical outputs are available including 0.5 – 10V, 4-20mA along with a choice of CANBus outputs including CANopen and J1939.
