Novotechnik's AWS 360ZE is a "heavy-duty“ version of the 360° potentiometer and is particularly suited for applications where rough conditions prevail. Its robust design is especially suited to industrial plants and heavy engineering industries.
The 360ZE potentiometer comes with a waterproof casing and shaft passage sealed by a gland. Electrical connection is effected on the side by means of a plug.
Apart from direct analogue use, the 360ZE can be used in conjunction with an external A/D converter. In this case, the unit operates as an angle transducer with 12 bit resolution and offering 10 bit absolute accuracy.
Contrary to the limitations encountered with other potentiometers, which have a dead band of some degrees which cannot be used, due to its two wipers and its hybrid circuit the AWS 360ZE can be used over all 360° of rotation.
The reset voltage at the beginning and end of the saw tooth are well defined, and there is no function angle tolerance as is normally associated with potentiometers.
These features together with output voltage is determined by the applied voltage means that units may be inter-changed or replaced without the need to adjust or trim. When turning the axle in cw (view on shaft end) the signal increases.
