These non-contact magnetic sensors are used to replace potentiometers used to measure angles and determine the location of continuously moving parts. They can measure 360° of rotation without a dead band. They deliver long-term performance in dirty and high vibration operating environments and feature no bearings, wiper contacts, or other moving parts. Coming standard are rectangular housings with a mounting depth of 8 mm or cylindrical housings that can be installed in a variety of narrow, space restricted locations. The 8-bit sensor offers a signal resolution of 1.41 degrees suitable for applications that require course positioning, and the 12-bit sensor provides a maximum resolution of 0.09 degrees for highly precise control systems.
