Rotary Position Sensors Endure 10M Cycles
Enhancing the company’s SV01 Series, Murata Electronics’ SV3H Series SMT rotary position sensors achieve a rotational life of 10 million cycles. The component is appropriate for automotive applications, such as angular detection (steering wheel, seat position, gear-shift, and pedal positioning, as well as adaptive front lighting systems), selector switches (climate control), position detection (power windows, sunroof, and lift gates), and variable resistors (dimmer control). The contact position sensor offers a profile of 2.1 mm, functions in a temperature range from -40°C to 125°C, and can act as a replacement for hall sensors. Sample pricing is $1.20.
