API Technologies Corp. announced today a new output option for its Spectrum Sensors line of H009 Hall Effect Position Sensors. The new 4-20mA output option joins the existing H009 series with Analog, PWR, and Serial output options. Hall Effect Position Sensors convert relative changes in a magnetic field into an electrical signal to provide position change information.

The API Hall Effect Series measure .875-inch in diameter with a .750 maximum length. They have a 12-bit resolution with a rotational life of over 100 million revolutions and feature an absolute linearity of +/- 0.1% at room ambient and +/- 0.3% at -40° to +125°C. They are available with several options including lead wires, lead lengths and terminations; HR370 High TG printed circuit boards; and JST and Molex terminals. Special shaft, flange mounting, and gear mounting frame configurations are also available.
