Variohm EuroSensor has added a ‘puck and magnet’ design option to its Euro-X programmable angle sensor range.

The new Euro-XPK is a fully non-contacting two-part design: a high-accuracy hall effect sensor element encapsulated in a high-grade sealed plastic housing; and a separate magnet, available in three size options.

The 38mm PCD radial slot mounting and the magnet offset tolerance of +/-3mm allow generous installation flexibility while the overall compact design – with sensor thickness under 8mm – enables use in very space-restricted areas.

With no bearings or mechanical coupling and a minimum IP68 environmental rating plus IEC 60068-2-6 vibration resistance, the very robust sensor’s working life is specified in excess of 100 million cycles.

The Euro-XPK adds even more flexibility to the Euro-XP series, which is also available as housed shafted/bearing versions in aluminium or high-grade plastic or as a non-contacting D-shaft option.

Throughout the Euro-XP series the specification includes dual-redundant factory-programmed angles from 20º to 360º in 10º steps with a ratiometric output from a 5V DC supply (+/-0.5V) for both measurement range and characteristic curve. The absolute output does not require position resetting after power loss or start-up. Independent linearity is specified at +/-0.5 per cent of the signal range, and repeatability is up to 0.2 per cent.

Aimed at motorsports, construction and agricultural angle sensing applications such as steering, sequential gearbox and throttle, the Euro-XP series also suits industrial high-duty cycle angle sensing for harsh environments.

Magnet options for the Euro-XPK include small and large rectangular designs, as well as an encapsulated M10 bolt version. The puck sensor may also be supplied separately for use with the customer’s own magnet design preference. Standard versions are supplied with cable connection but custom options with connectors, or adapted mounting, for example, are available on request.
