Non-Contacting Position Sensor Features Through-Hole Design and 360 & #176; Continuous Rotation
Fri, 01/22/2010 - 10:58am
TThe 8360 non-contacting, through-hole position sensor series features 360° continuous rotational capabilities in a low-profile, through-hole package, providing an ideal solution for applications where space and sensor mounting flexibility are critical. The 8360 is especially suited for applications in harsh environments. Its hollow shaft package is less than 16-mm thick, allowing easy interface to space restricted applications as well as applications where a blind shaft mount is not feasible. With its thin through-hole package, the sensor can fit around or over the shaft, offering OEMs and design engineers complete versatility. The 8360 distinguishes 0.088 degree increments of motion with accuracy of better than ±0.6% at room temperature over a full 360° of continuous rotation, and 12 bit resolution.
