March 8, 2019 – Sensata Technologies, an industrial technology company and a provider of sensors, announced the availability of the ACW4 Single Turn and TCW4 Multi Turn Absolute Hall Effect Sensors, which feature an over-molded, two-part modular construction that provides engineers with design flexibility.
The sensing electronics are encased in a thermoplastic polyamide shell while the separate activating magnet is external to the sensor assembly. This modular architecture results in a package of 50mm in diameter by a maximum 24mm thick that allows designers to incorporate the ACW4 and TCW4 sensors into both new and existing systems. An over-molded housing completely encapsulates the electronics and seals the cable entry from exposure to the elements, making this IP67-rated sensor a solution for robotic, industrial, manufacturing and material handling applications where dusty or wet conditions are common.
A variety of output types are available to ensure that the ACW4 or TWC4 sensors can interface with the most common controllers.
