The KINAX WT 720 converts the angular position of a shaft into a load independent direct current signal, proportional to the angular position.

The unit is contact free and his minimal mechanical abrasion on the input shaft. It technically extends the delivery program of angular transmitters with a programmable version and thus creates a number of new technical application possibilities. The robust housing makes this unit ideal for the mechanical engineering and vehicle manufacturing.


Rudder or propeller angular position transmitter KINAX WT720

The KINAX WT720 is a robust, absolute angular position transmitter, which is particularly suitable for use in marine applications such as the detection of rudder or propeller positions. In contrast to potentiometers, the Camille Bauer rotary encoder uses a unique, non-contact and maintenance-free capacitive measuring principle. This technology ensures optimal performance and a long life of the devices. The high mechanical strength, the robust design, the easy assembly and commissioning, the free parameter assignment and the GL approval guarantee the highest quality, flexibility and reliability in the application, installation and maintenance.
