Rotary Position Sensor Lasts 1M Cycles
Adding to the Trimpot product line, Bourns’ Model 3382 12 mm dustproof rotary position sensor endures 1 million rotational cycles with an IP40 seal rating. The shaftless SMT instrument exhibits ±2% independent linearity in an operating temperature range from -40°C to 120°C. The sensor suits applications requiring frequent adjustment where it is necessary to control a variable output, such as frequency, speed, contrast, brightness intensity, or volume control, as well as where a mechanical angular displacement is measured by the device’s proportional output signal. Applications include navigation systems, automotive power seats and mirrors, portable electronic equipment, digital cameras, industrial equipment and controls, robotic systems, mechanical compartment systems, appliances, and in-wall temperature control systems. Distribution pricing ranges from $1.10 to $1.20 in 1,000 quantities.
