Product Type: Linear Position

AN9 Sensors

Non-contact, intrinsically linear contact angle position sensors with two independent outputs. The sensors operate through the use of Hall Effect technology with magnetic fields generated by permanent magnets. They provide a linear change in voltage output (ratiometric to the input voltage) corresponding to an angular rotation of the input shaft.

Features

  • Angular position sensor with high tolerance for misalignment
  • Non-contact angular position sensing and full 360⁰ rotation
  • Dual independent (redundant) outputs assure high reliability
  • Custom programming available for: angle range, slope, PWM contact factory
  • No mechanical interface means no parts to wear out or jam
  • Comes with 18 AWG 305 mm (12”) wire leads
  • RoHS Compliant
  • IP68*
  • Maximum air gap of 5.5 mm (0.22”)**

Applications

  • Implement (fork lift, agricultural trailer hitch, etc.) position sensing
  • Steer, throttle by wire
  • Gear selection
  • Zero-contact encoder alternative
  • Replacement for smart bearings
  • Outboard trim sensing

ZF Electronics

ZF is a global leader in driveline and chassis technology and on May 20, 2015 ZF acquired TRW Automotive.  The company is now represented in 230 offices in 40 countries.  In 2014 both companies operated independently.  Collectively, the group achieved sales exceeding €30 billion euros with approximately 134,000 employees.  The Industrial Solutions (IS) product line in the Electronic Systems business unit (formerly CHERRY) develops and manufactures electromechanical components, specifically snap switches, panel-mount switches, rocker and sealed rocker switches, a full range of sensor products as well as Energy Harvesting wireless products.  Target customers for the Industrial Solutions product line include (but are not limited to) home appliance, HVAC, medical equipment and non-automotive equipment such as agricultural and commercial equipment and power sports vehicle (including marine and RV) OEM’s and distributors.

Honeywell

With more than 50,000 products ranging from snap action, limit, toggle and pressure switches to position, speed and airflow sensors, Honeywell has a product to meet any industry’s requirements and any company’s needs.

But an impressive product line is only one part. We bring to bear engineering expertise and value-added capabilities no other company offers. While our switch and sensor solutions meet a wide array of basic and complex applications, our custom-engineered solutions offer enhanced precision, repeatability and ruggedness for each industry of our expertise.
