Variohm EuroSensor adds puck and magnet option to angle sensors

22 September, 2016

UK sensor manufacturer and distributor, Variohm EuroSensor, has added a ‘puck and magnet’ design option to its Euro-X programmable angle sensor range.

The new Euro-XPK is a fully non-contacting two-part design: a high accuracy Hall Effect sensor element encapsulated in a high-grade sealed plastic housing and a separate magnet, available in three size options.

The 38 mm PCD radial slot mounting and the magnet offset tolerance of +/- 3 mm allows generous installation flexibility whilst the overall compact design – with sensor thickness under 8 mm – allows use in very space restricted areas. With no bearings or mechanical coupling and a minimum IP68 environmental rating plus IEC 60068-2-6 vibration resistance, the very robust sensor’s working life is specified in excess of 100 million cycles.

More flexibility

The Euro-XPK adds even more flexibility to the Euro XP series which is also available as housed shafted/bearing versions in aluminium or high-grade plastic or as a non-contacting D-shaft option. Throughout the Euro-XP series the impressive specification includes dual-redundant factory programmed angles from 20deg to 360deg in 10deg steps with a ratiometric output from a 5V DC supply (+/- 0.5V) for both measurement range and characteristic curve.

The absolute output does not require position resetting after power loss or start-up. Independent linearity is specified at +/- 0.5 per cent of the signal range, and repeatability is up to 0.2 per cent. Aimed at motorsports, construction and agricultural angle sensing applications such as steering, sequential gearbox and throttle etc., the Euro XP series also suits industrial high duty cycle angle sensing for harsh environments.

Magnet options for the Euro-XPK include small and large rectangular designs as well as an encapsulated M10 bolt version. The puck sensor may also be supplied separately for use with the customer’s own magnet design preference. Standard versions are supplied with cable connection but custom options with connectors, or with adapted mountings etc. are available on request.

Variohm EuroSensor manufactures the complete Euro XP product range and can ship fully programmed models within 24 hours of order receipt. As a manufacturer, distributor and supply chain partner Variohm provides complete support for applications across industry, construction, agriculture, motorsports, research and more with comprehensive range of position, force, pressure, load, and temperature sensor technologies.
