POSIMAG® is a non-contact, high resolution magnetic position measuring system for measuring lengths of up to approx. 30 meters. Because of its sturdiness and resistance to dirt, together with the system’s exceptional resistance to wear and tear, POSIMAG® is also suitable for use under challenging environmental conditions.
Advantages at a glance:
POSIMAG® position sensors are suitable for linear position measurement in many industrial applications in the production of machinery, plants and precision equipment, in which sturdiness and wear-free design play a crucial role, like e.g. in material handling systems. The POSIROT® product family was developed for similar types of rotary positioning applications.
POSIMAG® consists of a magnetic measuring strip and a non-contact magnetoresistive scanning head. The magnetic measuring strip is periodically magnetized with magnetic north and south poles. To capture a position the magnetoresistive sensor head samples sinusoidal magnetic fields above the magnetic measuring. Standard Resolutions up to 1 µm are available. The signals can be processed by all common industrial control units with suitable signal processing speeds, or displayed directly using a digital display unit from ASM´s PRODIS® series.
