BEI Duncan Electronics, a company of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST), has added the 8360 non-contacting, through-hole position sensor series to its line up. The device suits applications where space and sensor mounting flexibility are critical and harsh environments exist. Specific uses include position sensing for steering wheel, boom angle, throttling, pivoting, and traction control.

"To our knowledge, this one of the few though-hole, non-contacting position sensors available on the market today," says John Pindroh, BEI Duncan business development manager for position sensor and switch products. "The 8360's flexible through-hole design, combined with the durability and reliability of non-contacting technology and 360 degree continuous rotational capability, make it a unique product." BEI Duncan can modify the standard 8360 sensor with multiple turn capability, CAN Bus communication, and other adaptations, he added.

The 8360 Sensor's hollow shaft package is less than 16mm 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.

Incorporating highly precise positioning capabilities, the 8360 distinguishes 0.088 degree increments of motion with accuracy of better thane 8360 also features IP65 sealing, an operating performance across a wide temperature range of -30º to + 85ºC (-22º to 185ºF), and capabilities to withstand vibration up to 10Gs, 10-1000Hz, total PSD: 4.94 Grms; and 50Gs shock, half sine pulse of 11msec duration.

The 8360 measures just 15.55 mm by 82mm by 113mm (HxWxL). www.beiduncan.com
