The switching point can be programmed at any angle, allowing maximum design flexibility. It can also be used as an indicator for multi-turn applications. This low-current switch design incorporates both on and off positions that provide a secondary position verification for improved safety, important for critical applications in harsh environments. The PSC-360 also provides high-temperature capabilities with operational performance between -40ºC to +150ºC and accuracy over 360º at 0.5%. The IP67-rated sensor is housed in a low-profile 13mm package. Designed with the permanent magnet as the only moving component, the sensor provides a mechanical life of up to 50 million cycles. Pricing is less than $20 in production quantities.
