MovementSensors / ThrottleAngle

Throttle Angle Sensor

Rotary position sensor specifically designed for sensing throttle position. 97 rotation position sensing range. The hollow rotor allows insertion of a D profile shaft from either side to give clockwise/anticlockwise rotation measurement.

Technical Data
ConstructionConductive Plastic Track with multi fingered wipers, ensuring excellent contact under vibration
Life Expectancy5 x 10^6 cycles
Mechanical Rotation112 max
Electrical Rotation97 +/- 3
Supply Voltage5 - 24 VDC
Resistance Value5 kΩ +/-20%
Environmental SealingIP66
Temperature Range-25 to +125C (Peaks of 150 C for 15 mins)
Cable Type1 core silicone wire, 20 AWG. 20cm long


Installation

There are 3 leads that come from the sensor:
Red = +5v reference supply from the Data Logger
Black = ground connection on the Data Logger
White = Signal, connect to an analogue input.
A user defined variable can be entered into the analysis software to convert the voltage into an actual angle or throttle percentage if required.
