General Description

The NSE-5310 is a position sensor for linear and rotary off-axis applications based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure position and motion a multi-pole magnet strip or ring has to be used. There are 4096 positions (12 bit) per 2.0mm pole pair length which are provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I²C).

With two decades of magnetic sensor system know-how, we have broad experience in selecting the most suitable magnets. ams experts recommend the following magnet suppliers.

Not Recommended for New Designs
ams AG is discontinuing production of this device.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Motor speed and motion control for off-axis applications
  • Replacement of linear and rotary optical sensor systems
  • Micro-actuator and servo drive feedback
  • Piezo motor closed-loop motion control
