Measurement Specialties (Hampton, VA) [NASDAQ: MEAS] has released the KMA36, a digital position sensor for precise rotational and incremental measurement of magnetic field fluctuations. Using anisotropic magneto resistive (AMR) technology, the contactless sensor measures angles of an exterior magnet over a 360° rotation, as well as, incremental positions along a linear magnetic pole strip with a 5-mm pole length. Additional features include:
- A standard TSSOP package.
- An integrated analog-to-digital converter and signal processing capabilities.
- A self-diagnostic sequence at power-on that tests the electronic circuit before integration into the assembly and during field use.
