Bourns, Inc. announced it has expanded its line of non-contacting rotary position sensors with two new models. Designed to help increase the product lifespan and reliability of applications that operate in rugged environments, the Bourns® Model AMS22U and Model AMM20B utilize magnetic Hall Effect (HE) technology that helps increase operational life and reliability even in harsh environments. Bourns® non-contacting rotary position sensors offer an ideal solution for applications such as patient platform position feedback, pneumatic control valve position feedback, actuator motor position feedback, lift/shuttle suspension systems, and tilt control feedback. These applications are used in a wide range of industrial, commercial, medical, and automotive applications.
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 Bourns® 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 new 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 Bourns® Model AMM20B is priced at $24 each in 1,000 piece quantities.
