Non-contact rotary position sensor

The NRH27C non-contact rotary position sensor features a low-profile sensor body, small footprint, and CANbus J1939 communications. The IP69K-rated design protects the sensor from water, dust, shock, vibration, and temperature for use in on- and off-highway vehicles. The sensor can also serve as in medium-volume applications where customization may be required.

Within the CAN messaging structure of the vehicle, the NRH27C’s two independent Hall-effect sensing signals allow for error checking of the positional data. An on-board diagnostic function means predefined error messages can be sent to define the present state of the sensor. Factory-programmable electronics can also be set to different baud rate, node ID, and frame rates.

LiDAR sensor

The fixed-laser, solid-state Velarray light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor uses proprietary application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and the 125mm x 50mm x 55mm unit can be embedded into the front, sides, and corners of vehicles.

It provides up to a 120° horizontal and 35° vertical field-of-view, with a 200m range. The sensors have an ISO 26262 rating of ASIL B for use in level 4 or level 5 autonomous vehicles or with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Coil-spring coatings

Alesta Spring Black is a hybrid epoxy powder coating that provides flexibility, mechanical resistance, and corrosion resistance. With impact and stone-chip resistance, Spring Black is formulated to allow a vehicle’s coil suspension system to adapt to changing road conditions while supporting the weight of the vehicle. The product technology enables the coil suspension system to perform without compromising the integrity of the one-layer coating system.

Spring Black has a 150°C (302°F) metal curing temperature. Spring Black covers more surface area faster than other products due to high transfer efficiency, saving up to 20% in powder consumption per square meter.
