NRH280DP Dual Output No Contact Rotary Position Sensor from Penny + Giles Controls Ltd.

Penny+Giles announces a new dual output, no-contact rotary position sensor with the slimmest low profile housing, using a factory programmable Hall effect sensor system.

NRH280DP has a co-moulded fully encapsulated sensor system that can withstand high shock and vibration as well as operate up to +170°C, and endure high pressure wash-downs (IP69K). The sensor is activated by a separate magnet with a choice of two carrier designs

NRH280DP is designed for applications in extreme environments where space is limited. It also allows up to ±2mm radial offset, with a permissible gap 2-7mm between the sensor and magnet. The transmissive properties between the magnet and sensor also allow operation through non-magnetic materials.


  • NO-CONTACT technology with external position magnet
  • Unlimited mechanical lifetime - WEAR FREE
  • Will operate from -40 to +140°C, with excursions to +170°C
  • Withstands high pressure wash-downs (IP69K)
  • Simple mounting and extremely low profile (6.5mm) design
  • Minimal weight
  • 5Vdc or 9-30Vdc supply
  • Analog (0.5 - 4.5 or 0.1 - 4.9Vdc) or Digital (PWM) outputs
  • Measurement range from 0-20° to 0-360° in 1° increments
  • 12 bit resolution (0.025%) over the angular range
  • Extremely low signal noise level - less than 1mVrms
  • Electrically interchangeable with potentiometers
