Rotary position sensor provides contactless position detection
Chartwell Automation has announced the TURCK QR24 rotary position sensor. Designed from the company’s rotary inductive sensor technology, the QR24 provides contactless position detection and wear-free performance in a variety of industrial applications ranging from solar energy plants and harvesters to crane vehicles and AGVs. Rotary feedback is critical in nearly every installation, and most rely on their mechanical bearings to provide proper tolerance and position of the internal system. The QR24 provides superior performance without the need for contact or bearings, allowing it to successfully execute the same functions as an encoder or potentiometer while eliminating wear and extending sensor longevity.
