Hall Effect sensor targets harsh environments

BEI Sensors' new 9660 Hall Effect rotary position sensor has been designed for demanding harsh environment angular measurement applications across all areas of industry.

Available in the UK from Variohm EuroSensor, the IP67 rated sensor is available with 24 standard electrical angles through 0 to 360º and seven termination options including flying leads, Metri-Pack, AMP and Deutsch connectors. Both single or dual redundant outputs configured as voltage, ratiometric, PWM and current combine with input voltages that include 5VDC, 9 to 30VDC and 15 to 30VDC. The Hall Effect sensor has a mounting area of just 51 x 37mm and a height of less than 35mm. With an operating temperature range of -40 to 125ºC, it is aimed at applications from general industrial measurement to harsh environments. These include steering and pedal positioning for construction, agriculture and mining vehicles, marine steering and speed control, wheel and throttle position feedback for material handling, and valve positioning for process control.
