Variohm EuroSensor is using the 2016 Professional MotorSport World Expo to showcase its new 8mm D-shaft option of its EURO-XPD and Puck EURO- XPK Hall Effect angle sensor range.
The new sensors are being shown alongside its motorsport-proven Euro-XP non-contacting angle sensor, which now features increased interfacing flexibility. The Euro-XPD is available with a choice of 32 or 38mm PCD mounting, whilst its D-shaft integral magnet allows for easy installation without the need for a separate coupling.
Variohm states that form-fit interchangeability with competitive models is easy, as the assemblies maintain the optimal magnet to sensing- element gap. There is also a choice of mounting diameters, allowing for installation in a variety of situations. The coupling-free sensor is convenient for direct connection on other position sensing applications such as steering angle, suspension and gearbox sensors.
The new Euro-XPK model is a separate ´Puck + Magnet’ version from the comprehensive 28mm diameter Euro XP family. The Euro-XPK has a long life and is an extremely robust position sensor, which operates with true non-contact technology.
The Euro-XPD design features selectable magnet types, which the company says makes it easier for installation if sensing and mounting is difficult, and it suits arduous high-duty cycle position feedback applications.
Both sensors feature the industry preferred 5 VDC ratiometric output and include a redundant dual- track 360 degree measuring range for safety-critical use. The new sensors join the Euro XP family with completely contactless technology, mechanical bearing-free design and long-life specification in excess of 50million or 100million movements.
