Piher International’s noncontacting MTS 360 surface-mount device (SMD) rotary position sensor combines a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. Featuring reliability up to 25 million cycles in a 6 x 17 x 18 mm (0.24 x 0.67 x 0.71 in) HxWxL size, the exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors. The device relies on patented Hall-effect technology to enable for the first time, claims the company, true noncontacting through-hole shaft sensing using standard SMD features. Rated for use at -40 to 150°C (-40 to 302°F), the MTS 360 is suitable in automotive control systems, marine controls, forklift trucks, farm equipment, cranes, low-speed motor feedback, valve position sensors, and robotic and automation feedback systems.
