Non-Contacting Position SensorsThe 8360 Non-Contacting, Through-Hole Position Sensor Series features 360 degree continuous rotational capabilities in a low-profile, through-hole package, and the device provides an ideal solution for applications where space and sensor mounting flexibility are critical. Designed in a durable package, the 8360 is especially suited for applications in harsh environments such as industrial vehicles/material handling, agricultural and construction equipment, process controls, marine, aero-defense, energy, robotics, medical systems and valve actuation. The 8360 Sensor’s hollow shaft package is less than 16mm thick. With its thin through-hole package, the sensor can fit around or over the shaft, offering OEMs and design engineers complete versatility. The 8360 distinguishes 0.088 degree increments of motion with accuracy of better than ±2 mechanical degrees at room temperature over a full 360 degrees of continuous rotation, and 12 bit resolution. The 8360 also features IP65 sealing, an operating performance across a wide temperature range of -30º to + 85ºC (-22º to 185ºF), and capabilities to withstand vibration up to 10Gs, 10-1000Hz, total PSD: 4.94 Grms; and 50Gs shock, half sine pulse of 11msec duration.
