Position Sensor Does Double Duty

Position Sensor Does Double Duty

Performing two functions, the Blade25 inductive position sensor offers a non-contacting position sensing that provides both linear and rotary position feedback in a single package. The company's proprietary inductive sensing technology can monitor the activator's (target) position in either a straight linear movement or in a curved 'arc' rotary movement as it passes over the sensing element. The Blade25 is a two piece sensor that measures either ±45° of rotary movement or ±12.5 mm of linear displacement. In both cases there is no contact between the sensing element and the target, which acts as the activator and attaches to the moving element in the assembly. Pricing starts at $47 each in production volumes. A datasheet is available at http://gillsc.com/content/datasheets/25mm.pdf
