SHOW LIVE: Next-gen non-contact measurement sensors

LinkedIn +

Sensors have to endure some demanding environments and often these conditions prove too much for a sensor’s mechanical components. By removing the need for bearings or mechanical coupling, Variohm EuroSensor’s ‘puck and magnet’ Euro-XPK is able to operate in excess of 100 million cycles. The Euro-XPK is a fully non-contacting two-part design consisting of a highly accurate Hall Effect sensor element encapsulated in a high-grade sealed plastic housing and a separate magnet, available in three size options. It also has a minimum IP68 environmental rating and is rated to IEC 60068-2-6 for vibration resistance, making it ideal for motorsport applications such as steering, sequential gearbox and throttle.

Variohm EuroSensor are to be found in Booth 6036 at the 2017 Professional MotorSport World Expo
