BEI Sensors Ships Position Sensor

BEI Sensors has shipped its new 9970 Hall position sensor. The device features a 50mm mounting hole spacing for drop-in compatibility.

A 1.5 Series AMP Superseal connector comes standard with the IP67 and IP69K package that uses non-contacting technology, making this sensor exceptionally rugged and ideal for applications in harsh environments, the company states. With an operating life of up to 35 million cycles and a temperature rating from -40° to 125°C, the 9970 has been designed to perform in tough conditions.

The 9970 Hall effect sensor comes in two standard output configurations of 0-5V ratiometric or 4-20mA for ease of specification and use across applications. Unlike other sensors, the 9970’s ability to travel the full 360º allows it to be used over a large range of rotary motion. To limit radio interference, the 9970’s design is highly resistant to electromagnetic interference, up to 200V/m, about the strength of a microwave.

“We engineered the 9970 to meet the high performance levels demanded in harsh environments by providing a rugged sensor that has a standard 50mm hole spacing to ensure easy installation into existing systems and features electromagnetic resistance, high temperature operability and high cycle life.  All that and a speedy delivery time to better serve our customers,” says Dave D’Angelo, senior designer at BEI Sensors.
