Position Sensor is insensitive to input power fluctuations.
June 17, 2002 -
Based on phase shift principle, 7000 Series NCAPS® (Non-Contacting Angular Position Sensor) offers 0.21 in. profile solution for motion control, rotary position, or steering angle sensing. Features include 360° absolute rotary position feedback in sealed package and multiple outputs with up to four functional output channels. Sensors can be factory programmed to give pulse width modulation (PWM), Analog, Saw Tooth, or Dual Triangle outputs.

BEI Duncan Electronics Introduces the Series 7000 Non-Contacting Angular Position Sensor (NCAPS®) Featuring Extremely Thin Profile and Multiple Programmable Outputs
SAN JOSE, Calif. - May 20, 2002 - Duncan Electronics, a division of BEI Technologies, Inc., has introduced the new NCAPS® Thin Profile (Non-Contacting Angular Position Sensor). Offering an extremely thin profile solution for motion control, rotary position, or steering angle sensing, this NCAPS Thin Profile unit measures less than just 8 mm (0.21 inches) in thickness without housing.
The 7000 Series features true 360 degree absolute rotary position feedback in a fully sealed package. It offers multiple outputs with up to four functional output channels. Each sensor can be factory programmed to give pulse width modulation (PWM), Analog, Saw Tooth or Dual Triangle outputs. Custom outputs are also available.
Based on a phase shift principle, it is not sensitive to input power fluctuations. The sensor has only one moving (electrically passive) part and mounts directly to a wide range of shaft configurations. This technology is well suited to environments that have particle contamination and humidity concerns there traditional optical based systems typically loose their reliability. Other outstanding features include self-diagnostics, ultra low torque and a sealed six pin Packard Electric mating connector (part no. 120649930).
The new sensor is also offered as a thin profile sub-module without housing for incorporation into OEM equipment. This sub-module is ideal in extremely high density packaging configurations where typical sensors will not fit.
The NCAPS Thin Profile 7000 Series is available for immediate delivery. Pricing starts at $87.00 each in 1,000 piece quantities. A full data specification sheet and dimensions are available online at www.beiduncan.com. For further information, contact Mr. Mike Antar at (714) 247-2514 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
