A sensor for rotational direction and rpm of gears and engines has been introduced by Baumer Group. The MTRM 16 magnetic hall sensor is IP68-rated to operate reliably in harsh environments. The compact sensor has an operating voltage range from 8 to 28 Vdc. With a maximum switching frequency of 20 kHz, the durable sensor withstands temperatures from -40 to +120°C. The sensor’s IP67-rated M12 metal housing features a front face made of stainless steel protecting the sensor’s electronics from aggressive environments. The non-contact sensing principle minimizes abrasive wear and therefore maintenance. The company guarantees it a long-term, trouble free use.
The high speed MTRM 16 hall sensor meets stringent railroad standards, making it ideal for use on wind turbines and other heavy-duty applications. The completely sealed and coated all-metal housing allows continuously exposing the sensor to harsh liquids such as gear oils.
