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.

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
