Bourns just unveiled a non-contacting magnetic rotary position sensor that helps increase product lifespan and reliability in harsh/high-vibration environments. The AMS22 sensor uses magnetic hall-effect technology to ensure high performance even in severe temperatures or unclean conditions.
The sensor targets value and actuator position feedback, camera and antenna location identification, and precision position requirements in such applications as medical diagnostic and general industrial equipment.
The rotary position sensor helps improve product longevity up to fifty million cycles depending on the product and particular application. It has an analog single output from 0.1 to 4.9v, with an effective electrical output of 340 degrees and is programmable up to 360 degrees. The analog output features a 12-bit resolution and comes with independent linearity of 0.5% or 0.3%.
The non-contacting rotary position sensor is available now in production quantities and is offered at $12.50 for 10,000 piece quantities through distribution.
