The company's new MP1014 Series Hall magnetic proximity sensors reportedly provide solid-state sensing in a 3.3-mm high package, making them ideal for space-limited applications. The sensors use a low-pressure injection molding process to encapsulate the sensors in a high-performance polymamide, as opposed to typical magnetic proximity sensors that are encapsulated in rigid epoxy, according to the company. This is said to impart lower stress on the encapsulated electronics at temperature extremes and allows for sensors with small, tightly controlled geometrics. The dimensions of the sensors in this series are 17.3 x 21.8 x 3.3 mm. Standard termination is 12 in with 24 AWG PVC leads. The distance between the centerline of the mounting hole is 16.5 mm. According to the company, the sensors provide a three-wire sinking output, operate with standard supply voltages of 4.75 to 24 V d.c. and offer reverse-battery protection to -15 V d.c. The standard operating temperature range for the sensors is -40°C to +85°C, and the housing and encapsulating materials carry UL95 V-0 ratings.
