Variohm Eurosensor has announced the release of the BEI Duncan 8360 series of rotary hollow-shaft position sensors, designed for high-reliability angle measurement in harsh environments.

These position sensors feature non-contact potentiometric technology with continuous rotation, electrical angles up to 360 degrees and dual redundant analogue outputs in a compact and robust IP65-sealed package, which includes a splined through-hole design for direct shaft mounting.

The 8360 can be used in harsh-environment and safety-critical angle-measurement applications where high reliability, long life and durability are important design considerations.

It is suitable for use in agricultural and construction machinery, medical equipment, industrial automation and process control, typical uses will be steering angle, crane boom angle, throttle range and traction control feedback.

The sensor has an input voltage of 5VDC and as standard includes dual redundant 12-bit analogue outputs with a range of 0.25 to 4.75VDC and accuracy to +/-0.6 per cent.

A choice of 24 electrical angle ranges is available in 15-degree increments up to a full 360-degree rotation.

With an overall thickness of less than 16mm and nominal footprint of around 85 x 105mm, the 8360 series sensor can be mounted in space-restricted areas where the through-hole will directly interface with a 12-tooth splined shaft from 16-20 mm in diameter.

For straightforward installation, the sensor has four face-mount bush inserts and is supplied complete with a 200mm cable assembly with a six-pin AMP connector.

The robust and durable angle sensor has high shock and vibration resilience, overvoltage, short circuit and ESD protection, as well as magnetic shielding.

The nominal operational temperature range is from -30C to +85C with an extended temperature option of -40C to +125C.

Further options include non-standard electrical angles, non-standard output slope, PWM output, CAN Bus communication, multi-turn versions, IP67 sealing and special shaft interfacing.

As BEI Sensors exclusive distribution partner for the UK, Variohm Eurosensor provides sales and application support for BEI’s complete range of linear and rotary encoders, electronics and displays.
