Position Sensors

Linear and Distance Position Sensors

Precise Position Performance. Honeywell Sensing and Control (S&C) offers a full line of position sensors to meet a variety of operating environments and application needs – all built to deliver robust, long-lasting performance and enhanced product life.

  • Honeywell SMART Position Sensors (Superior Measurement, Accuracy, Reliability, and Thinking) enable highly accurate motion control, improving operational efficiency and safety. Measuring linear, angular, or rotary movement of a magnet attached to a moving object, their non-contact design eliminates mechanical failure mechanisms, reducing wear and tear, improving reliability and durability, and minimizing downtime. They are also easy to install, reducing setup costs.
  • Honeywell Non-contact Hall-effect Sensors respond to the presence or to the interruption of a magnetic field, using a solid-state Hall-effect IC to sense rotary movement of the actuator shaft and then producing a proportional output. The IC, circuitry and magnets are galvanized with an integral connector – more than a match for the most unforgiving conditions. Other benefits include: 360-degree operating range with multi-turn allowable rotation, low torque actuation, and greatly reduced wearout mechanisms.
  • Encoders are available in both mechanical and optical versions, and are best for potential applications requiring panel-mounted, manually-operated rotary sensing.
  • Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) are high-end position sensors with sensitive multi-axis motion control. These sensors measure the motion of the equipment onto which they are attached and deliver data to the equipment’s control module, allowing the operator to focus on other equipment functions, and enabling more precise control than can be achieved by using only the human eye, thus increasing safety, stability and productivity.
  • Ultrasonic Sensors measure time delays between emitted and echo pulses, to accurately determine sensor-to-target distance. These non-contact-based products solve tough sensing problems by detecting targets made of virtually any material – regardless of color, transparency, shine or opacity.
