Non-contacting rotary position sensors boost reliability
BOURNS Model AMS22U and Model AMM20B multiturn, non-contacting rotary position sensor utilize magnetic Hall Effect (HE) technology that helps increase operational life and reliability even in harsh environments. Devices are suitable 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. Model AMS22U provides a rotational life of up to 100 million cycles for superior longevity and reliability. It comes with a 1/8-inch shaft supported by dual ball bearings and a factory programmable electrical angle from 10 to 360 degrees.
