Low power angle sensors from Variohm EuroSensor
Variohm EuroSensor is now stocking the low poer version of Contelec's recently announced Vert-X 21 series angle sensor.
Aimed at power critical applications such as battery powered joysticks, radio controls or portable processing equipment, the non-contacting magnetic sensor has a reduced current consumption of less than 300µA and voltage rating of between 1.8 and 5.5VDC for a standard measurement range of 0 to 360 with 0.3% linearity.
Furthermore, the device can be ordered with optional user defined features that widen its application potential such as characteristic curve, index points, direction of rotation and programmable measurement angle.
With a diameter of less than 23mm, the Vert-X 21 has compact dimensions which suit its use in restricted envelopes and is available with a choice of servo or bush mounting housings in stainless steel. Both 6mm diameter 'D' shafts and 3.175mm slotted shafts are offered, and the unit can be supplied with standard IP54 protection class or optional IP65.
The sensor has an operational temperature rating of -40 to 125ºC and with no contacting sensor parts is suited to hostile environment applications.
