Resolvers convert mechanical shaft position to an electrical signal which represents the actual shaft angle. They are variable transformers in which the stator has two phase windings mechanically displaced by 90°. The output consists of two sine waves that are phase shifted by 90°. They provide non-contact measurement for 360° sensing, enhanced accuracy, resolution, and repeatability under severe environmental conditions.
Resolvers are generally chosen over electronic sensors (i.e., optical encoders, potentiometers, magnetic encoders/sensors) because they do not use electronics, so they are not susceptible to performance fluctuations in harsh environments. Resolvers are inherently radiation hardened and offer durable EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) performance.
Honeywell’s Hawk™ 1-Inch Series Resolvers are durable, reliable, non-contact, absolute position sensors with an operating temperature range from -50.8 °C to 93.3 °C [-60 °F to 200 °F] that allows for potential use in defense and aerospace applications.
Manufacturing process reduces lead time and allows customization. Honeywell uses the same components for all standard configurations of its Hawk™ 1-Inch Series Resolvers, increasing production speed and reducing lead time. This results in Honeywell’s ability to manufacture production-quality standard devices in 12 weeks versus 20-22 weeks many competitors offer. Additionally, Honeywell’s manufacturing process and the variety of product features allow customers to customize the resolver to meet their specific application accuracy and size requirements.
Global support and engineering expertise. Honeywell’s global presence offers customers timely product and application support. Many resolver competitors offer support only in their local manufacturing area, or limited support outside of their manufacturing area. With over 30 years of experience providing accurate, reliable, and durable resolvers for the aerospace and defense industries, Honeywell is your one-stop, full-service, globally-competitive answer to your resolver needs.
