TURCK, Inc: Rotary inductive sensor
Turck’s rotary inductive sensors provide 360-degree angular measurement for outdoor applications.
The sensors utilize resistance inductive capacitance (RLC) measuring technology, rather than a traditional magnetic positioning element—delivering complete immunity to EMC interference. Sensors are IP67 rated, with a temperature range of -40 to 70 °C, making the devices useful for measuring the angle of solar panels, wind turbine blade position, crane position, and other outdoor applications. The sensor and its positioning element are designed as separate pieces, allowing the positioning element to be mounted in a variety of ways—including directly onto a rotating shaft—without experiencing the wear common to these types of sensors.
