High Output
Industrial VRS Magnetic
Speed Sensors
DESCRIPTION
High Output VRS sensors are designed for use in applications
where higher output voltages are needed. They perform best at
low to medium speeds with medium to high impedance loads.
Front-End Sealed versions are available for use where the
sensor is exposed to fluids, lubricants or adverse
environmental conditions.
Passive VRS (Variable Reluctance Speed) Magnetic Speed
sensors are simple, rugged devices that do not require an
external voltage source for operation.
A permanent magnet in the sensor establishes a fixed
magnetic field. The approach and passing of a ferrous metal
target near the sensor’s pole piece (sensing area) changes the
flux lines of the magnetic field, dynamically changing its
strength. This change in magnetic field strength induces a
current into a coil winding which is attached to the output
terminals.
FEATURES
• Self-powered operation
• Direct conversion of actuator speed to output frequency
• Simple installation
• No moving parts
• Designed for use over a wide range of speeds
• Adaptable to a wide variety of configurations
• Customized VRS products for unique speed sensing
applications
• Housing diameters: 5/8 in (M16), 3/8 in (M12)
• Housing materials/styles: stainless steel threaded or
smooth
• Terminations: MS3106 connector, preleaded
• Output voltages: 8 Vp-p to 190 Vp-p
The output signal of a VRS sensor is an ac voltage that varies
in amplitude and wave frequency as the speed of the
monitored device changes, and is usually expressed in peak to
peak voltage (Vp-p).
One complete waveform (cycle) occurs as each target passes
the sensor’s pole piece. If a standard gear were used as a
target, this output signal would resemble a sine wave if viewed
on an oscilloscope.
Honeywell also offers VRS sensors for general purpose, power
output, high resolution, high temperature, and hazardous
location applications, as well as low-cost molded versions.
POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS
• Engine RPM (revolutions per minute) measurement on
aircraft, automobiles, boats, buses, trucks and rail
vehicles
• Motor RPM measurement on drills, grinders, lathes and
automatic screw machines
• Motor RPM measurement on precision camera, tape
recording and motion picture equipment
• Process speed measurement on food, textile, paper,
woodworking, printing, tobacco and pharmaceutical
industry machinery
• Motor speed measurement of electrical generating
equipment
• Speed measurement of pumps, blowers, mixers, exhaust
and ventilating fans
• Flow measurement on turbine meters
• Wheel-slip measurement on autos and locomotives
• Gear speed measurement
