PS15 Rotary Position SensorThe PS15 Rotary Position Sensor, a SMD version of the PT15 Potentiometer, features configurable capabilities for maximum design flexibility in a small 15mm package. The sensor offers a new surface mountable solution for detecting changes in angle and position and converting them into a highly reliable voltage output. It can be processed by standard automated placement equipment and reflow (or lead-free reflow) soldered. For applications where rotor angle is critical, locating pins are available. The PS15 Series is available with seven different rotor designs and 15 shaft styles with choice of nine colors in standard or UL94 compatible plastic. This offering allows a custom sensing solution for virtually any control or position feedback requirement. The result is a customized sensor that maximizes board density, reduces weight and eases assembly while achieving the engineer’s critical sensor design goals for the application. An optional detent feature provides further customization. Detents not only add a crisp "click" sensation for each unique position without affecting the sensor specification or output, but also offer significant savings in cost and space.
