Malvern, Pa.Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced the 351 HE, a single-turn, bushing-mount position sensor in the size 09 (22.2mm) that features Hall effect technology for applications in harsh environments.
Hall effect technology gives the 351 HE the ability to perform in conditions involving high frequency vibrations up to 20G and shocks up to 50G over a temperature range of -45°C to +125°C.
The sensor is optimized for foot pedal position sensors, throttle position sensors, steering position sensors, rudder positioning, auto pilot feedback, drive-by-wire, lift and shuttle position sensors, tilt control and tilt positioning feedback, and suspension system position sensors in marine, avionics, fork lift trucks, farm equipment, and automotive applications.
With all electrical angles available up to 360° with no dead band, the device features accurate linearity down to ±0.5%. The sensor offers a long life greater than 10 million cycles, with continuous performance for the life of the device with no drift of linearity.
The sensor offers a supply voltage of 5V ±10%, with other values available upon request. The device features a typical supply current of 10mA, and 16mA for PWM output. The sensor offers +20-V over voltage protection and "10-V reverse voltage protection. The recommended load resistance is 4kΩ for analog output and 1kΩ for PWM output. Redundant output signals are available upon request.
Pricing; $21 each in 100-piece quantities.
Availability: Samples are available now; production quantities will be available in the fourth quarter of 2007 with lead times of 12 weeks for large orders.
