Linear Position Hall Effect Sensor with Short 0 mm to 10 mm
Electrical Strokes

 

 

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released a new linear position sensor featuring non-contacting Hall effect technology. Covering short electrical strokes to 10 mm max and available with a spring return system, the 20 LHE is optimized for applications in harsh environments requiring long-life sensors.

 

The Hall effect technology of the new 20 LHE gives it the ability to perform in conditions involving high-frequency vibrations up to 20 G and shocks up to 50 G. With a long life of 10 million cycles, the device is ideal for short stroke measurements in industrial applications including tillers heads for forklift steering; tractor gear shifts; truck tilt sensors; and pressure measurement and pedal displacement systems.

 

The 20 LHE features accurate linearity down to 1 %. The sensor offers analog ratiometric or digital PWM output, and it provides continuous performance for the life of the device with no drift of linearity. The 20 LHE operates with a supply voltage of 5 V 10 % and supply current of < 16 mA typical, and it withstands + 20 V overvoltages and - 10 V reverse voltages. The recommended load resistance is 1 kilohm for analog output and PWM output. The device is compliant to RoHS directive 2002/95/EC.

 

Samples of the 20 LHE are available now. Production quantities will be available in Q1 2012, with lead times of 12 weeks for large orders. Follow Vishay's non-contacting position sensors at http://twitter.com/vishayindust
