Avtron AV5 SMARTach II™ sensors are magnetoresistive, severe duty incremental quadrature sensors for the AV485, AV685, or AV850 rotary encoders. The AV5 is also usable in applications where an encoder housing is not needed – simply mount the AV5 with your bracket, and use an AV850 or other rotor. Also available: XR5
sensors for hazardous duty applications.
The AV5 is ideal for applications where mounting on a large diameter through-shaft is needed, including large hollow shafts for cooling water or air. The AV5 sensor + AV850 rotor combination permits through-shafts up to 4.5" [115mm].
The AV5 offers a full range of electrical connector options, including IP67 cable, IP66 MS connectors, and IP65 Industrial with built-in terminal strips. The AV5 sensor is fully protected against all types of wiring errors, including short circuits, reverse voltage, and phase-to-phase shorts. It is one tough sensor! For larger bore applications, use AV12 sensors with the AV125 encoder (or as stand-alone).
