Miniature Encoder Boasts Small Size, High Resolution

Fri, 12/05/2008 - 7:04am


The Tracker position sensor is a high-resolution magnetic sensor with an integrated, on-chip digital encoder. Its small size and 2.0 µm resolution make this magnetic encoder a robust and cost-effective alternative to miniature optical encoders. It can be used as a linear encoder or off-axis rotary encoder. The TRK-1T02 Tracker position sensor measures 8.5 × 11.5 × 1.61 mm. Total height with magnet and air gap is approximately 3.0 mm—up to 50% thinner than comparable optical encoders with glass scale. Unlike optical encoders, the Tracker does not require a light source and is insensitive to external light, making it well suited for optical imaging applications
