Short Stroke Linear sensors are built using conventional PCB technology and detect the position of a Standard Target without mechanical or electrical contact. They are robutst, simple and tolerant of misalignment and large gaps. Measuring Length is typically up to 6mm, although the target is detected over a much greater (but non-linear) range.
The CAM204 Central Tracking Unit (CTU) chip can measure one or two such "Type 4" sensors.
The following are recommended for getting started with the Short Stroke sensor:
Note that the Short Stroke sensor only works with Type 4 circuitry; please use the Type 3&4 CAM204 Development Board for prototyping (part number 013-5029) and NOT the Type 1 CAM204 Development Board (part number 013-5006).
