Our angular position sensors are either designed as line replaceable units (LRUs) or may be fitted inside servo-control actuators or DC brushless motors for commutation or vector control. They provide differential electrical outputs giving an image of the sensed angle.
We can also design the electrical modules for powering the sensor and processing the signal to a DC output.
The sensor’s signal integrity, including its connection wiring, is easily detected by checking the quadratic sum of output voltages
Accuracy from ±0.1% Full Scale for a standard sensor
Sensors can be provided with manual/automatic locking and unlocking features
Electrical and also mechanical redundancy (up to 4 channels). Gearheads for multi-turn movements ( e.g. cowl or flaps/slats actuation shafts)
Our engineers design each unit to be perfectly tuned for each application
Here are the different mechanisms that we can use to sense the angular position:
Our inductive angular position sensors are mainly used for aerospace and defence applications:
At Meggitt, we can provide you with a brushless resolver that is specifically designed for your application. To discuss what you need in more detail, please contact us.
