Courtesy: ApemApem’s FR Series is a single axis three-position hall effect thumb control designed for material handling, agricultural, and construction applications. The FR series operates from a 5 V dc supply and provides an analog voltage output at each detent location. (A detent is a location where rotation is slowed or stopped.) The control is available with single or redundant outputs, this three position controller is rated up to three million full forward to back lifecycles. The FR Series is also environmentally sealed to IP69K and designed for operation in extreme temperatures from -40 to +85 C. Single output configurations feature a 5-position TE 3-647166-5 connector. Dual output configurations feature a 7-position TE 3-647166-7 connector. The FR Series also offers configuration options including voltage output range, handle color and mounting style.
