Position Sensor Favors The Short Stroke

Featuring a linearity down to ± 1% and a lifespan of 10-million cycles, the 20 LHE non-contacting, Hall effect linear position sensor delivers short electrical strokes to 10 mm maximum and is available with a spring return system. The sensor offers analog ratiometric or digital PWM output and it provides continuous performance for the life of the device with no drift of linearity. It operates with a supply voltage of 5V ± 10% and supply currents <16 mA typical. Pricing is $15 each/1,000. VISHAY INTERTECHNOLOGY, INC., Malvern, PA. (619) 336-0860.
