Honeywell SMART Position Sensors, SPS Series, are some of the most durable, adaptable, and lightweight absolute position sensors available in the industry, enabling enhanced accuracy in motion control and improving operational efficiency and safety. The two-piece, fully non-contacting design facilitates ease of integration in the application, promoting performance even in the harshest environments.
Why is the SMART Position Sensor smart? Honeywell has utilized MR (Magnetoresistive) technology to provide enhanced accuracy and repeatable position sensing. The application of SMART sensing solutions provides critical system feedback, allowing for “smarter”, more efficient function. This can translate to improved productivity, a safer work environment, and minimized cost of operations.
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.
SMART Position Sensors, SPS Series, are available in three sensing configurations:
