Mouser- Easy-to-program contactless magnetic rotary position sensor

05-05-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser now stocks the AMS AS5601 magnetic rotary position sensor - an easy-to-program magnetic rotary position sensor with incremental quadrature (A/B) and 12-bit digital output. The contactless system measures the absolute angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. The PUSH output indicates fast air gap changes between the AS5601 and a magnet. This can be used to implement a contactless push-button function in which the knob can be pressed to move the magnet toward the AS5601. The device is designed for contactless magnetic position sensor applications and its robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields. The industry-standard I²C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer.
