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.
