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.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
