Position sensor offers high performance in a miniature size


22-04-2022 | visa | Test & Measurement

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released a new miniature position sensor with a small outer diameter of 12.7mm that provides greater accuracy and resolution than competing devices of the same size while providing increased reliability and durability for harsh operating environments of military and industrial applications. The Vishay MCB RAME012 Rotary Absolute Magnetic Encoder uses advanced non-contact technology to achieve >11-bit accuracy and 14-bit resolution while maintaining its robustness against external magnetic fields, air pollution, mechanical shock, vibration and temperature changes. The device has a convenient 360 degree electrical angle and operates over a temperature range of -40C to +105C.

The design of the device body – with its on-axis design, slim diameter and light weight (

With its SSI output and superior performance/size ratio, the position sensor perfectly replaces potentiometers in missile guidance systems, gimbals for optical balls and missile seekers, positioning systems for small industrial actuators (servo drives ), and the multidimensional mechanical measurement of surfaces using 3D probes.
