The 8360 Non-Contacting,
Through-Hole Position Sensor features 360 degree continuous rotational
capabilities in a low-profile, through-hole package. Durable packaging makes
the 8360 especially suited for applications in harsh environments such as
industrial vehicles/material handling, agricultural and construction equipment,
process controls, marine, aero-defense, energy, robotics, medical systems and
valve actuation. Specific uses include
position sensing for steering wheel, boom angle, throttling, pivoting, and traction
control. The sensor's hollow shaft
design allows the customer to mount the sensor around or over the shaft to
provide an ideal solution for applications where a blind shaft is not feasible
and space and sensor mounting flexibility is critical. The 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. The 8360 is one of the few though-hole, non-contacting position
sensors available on the market today.
The 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 that will fulfill a wide range of OEM
requirements across many industries and applications.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
