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.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
