Angle measurement even in harsh environments

Newly released from Variohm EuroSensor, BEI Duncan 8360 series high accuracy rotary position sensors feature non-contact potentiometric technology with continuous rotation, electrical angles up to 360 degrees and dual redundant analogue outputs in a compact and robust IP65 sealed package that includes a splined through-hole design for direct shaft mounting.

The 8360 will suit both harsh environment and safety critical angle measurement applications where high reliability, long life and exceptional durability are important design considerations. For use in agricultural and construction machinery, medical equipment, industrial automation and process control, typical uses will be steering angle, crane boom angle, throttle range and traction control feedback. The sensor has an input voltage of 5V DC and as standard includes dual redundant 12-bit analogue outputs with a range of 0.25 to 4.75V DC and accuracy to ±0.6%. A choice of 24 electrical angle ranges are available in 15 degree increments up to a full 360 degree rotation.

With an overall thickness of less than 16mm and nominal footprint around 85x105mm, the 8360 series sensor can be mounted in extremely space restricted areas where the through-hole will directly interface with a 12-tooth splined shaft from 16mm to 20mm in diameter. For straightforward installation, the sensor has four face mount bush inserts and is supplied complete with a 200mm cable assembly with a 6-pin AMP connector. 

The robust and durable angle sensor has high shock and vibration resilience, overvoltage, short circuit and ESD protection as well as magnetic shielding. The nominal operational temperature range is from -30°C to +85ºC with a an extended temperature option of -40°C to +125°C. Further options include non-standard electrical angles, non-standard output slope, PWM output, CAN Bus communication, multi-turn versions, IP67 sealing and special shaft interfacing.
