Piher's New Ultra Miniature SMD Rotary Sensor Offers Size and Functionality Breakthroughs


The MTS360 provides a true breakthrough in contactless sensor technology by combining a through-shaft design with 3600 absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. The result is the smallest fully featured rotary sensor on the market with reliability up to 25 million cycles. With its tiny size of only 6 mm x 17 mm x 18 mm (HxWxL), engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their PCB without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other absolute position devices. The exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors ...
