Limit Sensor

  1. Aug 27, 2007 #1
    If I have 2 limit sensors set in a circular arc around a rotating servo motor, and the angle between them is 83°, approximately what is the angular range of motion that I can achieve? Please take into account, and let me know what clearances I need to be aware of (i.e. how many degrees clearance should I leave between the end of the range of motion, and when the limit sensor is tripped).

    Not sure what you are asking.
    The sensor will have an angle range that it is held over.
    So if trips ON when the wheel is over it there will be a finite angle before it is OFF.
