The NRH27C non-contact rotary position sensor is suitable for use on specialty on- and off-highway vehicles utilizing CANbus communications. The NRH27C extends the NRH271 and NRH272 family, and shares many features and benefits.

The sensors feature low-profile bodies, small footprints, CANbus J1939 communications, and encapsulated IP69K-rated designs – offering performance against water, dust, shock, vibration, and temperature.

On- and off-highway vehicles can use the sensors in challenging environments, and it can serve as a cost-effective solution for medium-volume applications where a degree of customization may be required.

Within the CAN messaging structure of the vehicle, the NRH27C’s two independent Hall-effect sensing signals allow for error checking of the positional data, which addresses the needs of safety-critical applications. An on-board diagnostic function means predefined error messages can be sent to define the present state of the sensor.

Factory-programmable electronics can also be easily set to different Baud rate, Node ID, and Frame rates according to system requirements.

Contained in a 9.5mm low-profile housing and available with industry-standard AMP Superseal, Deutsch DT04 series connectors, or simple 18AWG flying-leads for customer termination, the NRH27C can be powered from a 5VDC regulated or 9-30VDC unregulated supply and provides a full 360° output range.
