Qualified to RTCA/DO-160F aircraft standards, products come in Â½ in., 7/8 in., and 7/8 in. dual (double redundant) sizes. Degree of linearity is achieved via precision machining, chip-tuning capability, and electronic testing processes. Construction withstands harsh environments involving temperature, vibration, moisture, and dirt.
Original Press Release:
New Non-Contact Hall Effect Position Sensors with Absolute Linearity of ±0.1%
Grass Valley, CA - June 16, 2009 - Ultra precise, non-contact Hall Effect position sensors featuring absolute linearity of ±0.1% are introduced by Spectrum Sensors and Controls. These 12 bit resolution devices are qualified to RTCA/DO-160F aircraft standards and come in 1/2" (12.7 mm), 7/8" (22.23 mm) and 7/8" (22.23 mm) dual (double redundant) sizes with high temperature and custom versions available.
Spectrum achieves the precise linearity in their sensors through proprietary precision machining, chip-tuning capability and electronic testing processes. Other producers of Hall Effect sensors are capable of linearities ranging from ±0.5% to ±1%. Hall Effect sensors convert energy from a magnetic field into an electrical signal, enabling their contact-less operation and yielding nearly unlimited life cycles. These sensors offer a cost effective solution for many harsh environment applications involving temperature, vibration, moisture and dirt, making them ideal for a range of military and aerospace, as well as commercial designs.
Spectrum Sensors' non-contact hall effect position sensors are priced starting at $59.95 per 1000 pieces. Consult the factory for more detailed pricing and leadtimes.
