Variable Gap Sensor Operates Touch Free
Piher Sensors & Controls
February 8, 2016
The company’s touchless, custom two-piece magnetic Hall effect variable gap sensor is suitable for use in the harshest of environments. The component maintains stable electrical output and specified linearity on mobile shafts, despite radial and axial movement. It is immune to typical radial and axial play on mobile shafts where significant misalignment often results in poor operational performance and labor-intensive maintenance. The play resistance performance is achieved by means of a circular arc magnet, where 360º rotation angle is unnecessary, that is attached to rotating shafts or assemblies, such as boom loaders, skid steers, buckets and hitch arms, and the electronics module to the chassis or vice versa.
