5320 SERIES - EXTREME ENVIRONMENT PANEL POTENTIOMETER WITH IP66 AND IP67 RATINGS

Duncan Electronics, a division of BEI Technologies, Inc., has developed a fully sealed, harsh environment panel potentiometer. This shaft driven sensor can be used in both position feedback and operator input (panel) applications. The device is rated to meet the requirements of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 529 for Enclosure Protection IP66 AND IP67.

This new generation sensor assembly offers very slim design with low electrical noise performance using a new proprietary “LN” conductive plastic “ink” formulation. The unit can withstand over 1 million full rotation cycles. Additionally, the device is fully sealed and is impervious to contamination and moisture. The sensor can withstand storage temperatures as high as 150ºC and offers continuous operation to 125ºC. The device is ideally suited for use in the harshest industrial, commercial and off highway environments.

BEI Duncan has identified an increasing need for small, high performance sensor packages to meet the demanding requirements in new position feedback and panel control applications. With housing dimensions measuring only 15.9mm wide (0.63”) x 17.7mm (0.7”) high and featuring a slim depth of only 11.6mm (.46”), the 5320 is one of the smallest, fully sealed panel pots in the industry. Additionally, the 5320 Series offers numerous standard and custom options including detent functions, various electrical/mechanical angles, continuous mechanic rotation, shaft configurations, shaft and bushing diameters/lengths, resistance values, etc.

The performance features coupled with the flexibility of the 5320 series design allows it to be easily integrated or re-packaged into a wide variety of existing and new applications. Pricing starts at under $7.00 each in 1,000 piece quantities.
