Overview

SMART Position Sensor, SPS Series, 100° arc configuration, 0° to 100° sensing range, 18 Vdc to 40 Vdc supply voltage, 0.5 Vdc to 4.5 Vdc, magnet actuator included.

The Honeywell SMART Arc Position Sensor is one of the most durable, adaptable, lightweight, and non-contact position sensors available, enabling absolute position sensing with enhanced accuracy. This simple, robust, arc position sensor offers an IP69K sealed package, eliminating mechanical failure mechanisms, reducing wear and tear, improving reliability and durability, and minimizing downtime.

The SMART Arc Position Sensor is a non-contact sensing solution, providing highly accurate motion control and improving operation efficiency and safety. This Honeywell position sensor utilizes magnetoresistive technology to detect the position of a magnet relative to the sensor in one of two available sensing ranges:

  • 0° to 100°
  • 0° to 180°

Why is the SMART Position Sensor smart? SMART means that this is a sensor that can essentially think for itself. SMART Position Sensors provide a self-diagnostics feature and data gathering for enhanced reliability and closed-loop feedback control.

These devices use a patented combination of an ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) and an array of MR (magnetoresistive) sensors to accurately and reliably determine the position of a magnet attached to a moving object so that the object's position can be determined or controlled.

The MR array measures the output of the MR sensors mounted along the magnet's direction of travel. The output and the MR sensor sequence determine the nearest pair of MR sensors to the center of the magnet location. The output of these two MR sensors is then used to determine the position of the magnet between them.

With this sensor, Honeywell has utilized MR technology through the ASIC at a level never before accomplished.

Other configurations are in development.
