NSE-5310 Linear Position Sensor

12-Bit Linear Position Sensor With Digital Interface and PWM Output

The NSE-5310 is 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).
