Three-position Hall-effect thumb control for material handling and construction applications

13-01-2015 | Apem | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

Designed for material handling and construction applications requiring a reliable device for 'change direction' and 'gear switching' functions, the new FR Series of single-axis three-position Hall effect thumb controls has been introduced by APEM. .

Operating from a 5VDC supply, the FR is a three-position controller providing an analog voltage output at each detent location. The FR Series features contactless Hall-effect technology to provide long-life performance. Available with single or redundant outputs, the single-axis position controller is rated up to three million full forward to back lifecycles.

The FR Series is environmentally sealed to IP69K and designed for operation in extreme temperatures from -40C to +85C making it ideally suited for material handling, construction and agriculture applications.

The FR Series may be specified with either 10-inch flying leads or a Molex 2.54mm pitch connector in the base of the housing. Single output configurations feature a five-position TE 3-647166-5 connector. Dual output configurations feature a seven-position TE 3-647166-7 connector.

The FR Series offers a wide range of configuration options including voltage output range, handle colour and mounting style.
