The innovative Hall-effect accelerator controls of the Metis series are designed to ensure maximum reliability for all electrically powered vehicles endowed with wheelhouse, which require an 0-5 volt analog input proportionate to position in order to interface with the speed control of the engine, in particular for handling and lifting machinery (pallet trucks, forklifts, tractors, tugs, cranes) and for industrial cleaning machinery. The Hall-effect operating principle, the signal management firmware, changeover point management firmware and the innovative magnetic-return system make the mechanics extremely simple and reliable (reducing to the essential the presence of contact parts) and the accurate and repeatable signal can be configured by the customer. These characteristics, together with the resin coating and the sealed case make the throttle control suitable for use in harsh environments.

1. PROGRAMMABLE CIRCUIT BOARD
The angular sensor integrated in the base detects the joint rotation of the magnet and the main shaft, without mechanical wear. The programmable board provides a wide range of output and switch signal configurations. The board integrates the IVS signal without contact microswitches and mechanical parts necessary to operate them. It guarantees a reliable, accurate and repeatable signal, which can be configured by the customer, and does not require manual calibrations during the production process.
2. MAGNETIC RETURN
Not subjected to the deterioration which is typical in mechanical springs, the magnetic return system guarantees an infinite life cycle. The return in position of the lever and the input for the Hall sensor are obtained with just one magnet, thus reducing mechanical components.
3. SEALED CASING
The plastic cover protects the interior from infiltrations.
4. RESINED CIRCUIT BOARD
Guaranteeing maximum protection from infiltrations.
5. CONTACTLESS HALL-EFFECT TECHNOLOGY
The absence of mechanical wear between moving parts guarantees a signal that does not deteriorate with use.
6. INDEPENDENT CIRCUITS
Double output versions are developed by integrating two sensors with totally independent and galvanically isolated circuits on the same support, in compliance with functional safety requirements contemplated by the EN ISO 13849 regulations.
The number of connector pins is determined by the chosen electronic configuration; it is possible to install additional models upon customer's request.
