Series 285 Non-Contacting Rotary Position Sensor

CTS' series 285 is a non-contacting rotary position sensor for applications that may encounter harsh environments. Series 285 delivers high performance over a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C for applications that require accurate position sensing in various environmental settings. Offered with standard 5.0 VDC and 3.0 VDC powering options, the series 285 can be used in standard and energy-efficient applications.

Series 285 offers high durability with 10 million cycles of rotational life, linearity as low as ±0.25%, and hysteresis as low as 0.2% for precision position sensing. This product is offered with a standard internal shield to eliminate any electromagnetic interference (EMI) that may be emitted from neighboring components or motors. Three standard ingress protection (IP) options (50, 54, and 67) provide the right grade of protection suitable for the application. Other key features include a high vibration rating (30 Gs) for applications under constant vibration, and optional 270° and 320° electrical angles with end stops for applications that require a shorter mechanical travel distance.
