BEI Duncan Electronics' 8360 Non-Contacting, Through-Hole Position Sensor

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.
