Component manufacturer Bourns Inc. has expanded its line of non-contacting rotary position sensors
for operation in harsh environments with two new models. The Bourns
Model AMS22U and Model AMM20B utilize magnetic Hall Effect (HE)
technology that helps increase operational life and reliability. These
non-contacting rotary position sensors are designed for use in a wide range of industrial, commercial, medical, and automotive
applications such as patient platform position feedback, pneumatic
control valve position feedback, actuator motor position feedback,
lift/shuttle suspension systems, and tilt control feedback.
According to the vendor. the new non-contacting position sensors offer a cost-effective solution in application fields that require meets stringent reliability standards. In addition, the non-contacting sensor
technology offers consistent performance over life and good performance
in harsh environments resulting in reduced component replacement costs.
The Bourns Model AMS22U is a single-turn, non-contacting rotary position sensor that offers a rotational life of up to 100 million cycles for superior longevity and reliability. The new
sensor features a 1/8-inch shaft supported by dual ball bearings and a
factory programmable electrical angle from 10 to 360 degrees.
The Model AMM20B is a multiturn, non-contacting rotary position sensor that features a rotational life of up to 50 million cycles, depending on the product and particular application. The new
sensor features a slim profile package for space-constrained
applications, 12-bit resolution and a factory programmable electrical
angle from 1080 to 3600 degrees.
The non-contacting rotary position sensors
are available now in samples and production quantities. As a pricing
reference, the Bourns Model AMS22U is priced at $35 each in 1,000 piece
quantities. The Model AMM20B is at $24 each in 1,000 piece quantities.
Both models are available through Bourns' distribution sales channels.
