BEI Sensors has released a new product selection guide that explains the fundamentals of various speed and position sensing technologies and how to choose which is best suited to a particular application. BEI’s extensive line of rugged products include rotary encoders, rotary and linear potentiometers and rotary Hall effect sensors, all of which are displayed in easy-to-read charts that summarize the most critical specification criteria side-by-side.
BEI understands the challenges posed by extreme applications and has developed a broad selection of position and speed sensors designed to operate in the harshest conditions imaginable. Throughout this guide, icons representing environmental extremes provide a quick visual to indicate products ideal for a particular environment. In addition, an extensive section on hazardous areas provides information on explosion proof, nonincendive and intrinsically safe products.
