  • Magnetic Field Sensors as Speed Monitors
    Magnetic field sensors are generally based on the magneto-resistive or Hall-principle. Compared to optical speed sensors, resolvers and precision potentiometers, magnetic field sensors do not contain movable parts, such as shafts, bearings, code disks or slip rings. An aspect allowing them
  • No contact means no headaches in position transducing
    impressed on the linear resistive track is coupled to the collector track, both permanently fixed, by the moving probe. The collector output amplitude is proportional to the probe's position along the track, and is scaled and filtered by a signal conditioning circuit. The equivalent circuit diagram
  • Position Sensors and Position-Sensing Instruments
    resistive, optical triangulation, photoelectric, position displacement, ultrasonic, and variable resistance technology sensors. Position-sensing instruments also include laser micrometers, linear encoders, linear potentiometers, and linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs). Rotary position
  • Bridge Sensing with the MCP6S2X PGAs
    Resistive sensors configured as Wheatstone bridges are primarily used to sense pressure, temperature or loads. An external A/D converter (ADC) and a digitally Programmable Gain Amplifier (PGA) can easily be used to convert the difference voltage from these resistor bridge sensors to usable digital
