Compact, light, cost effective; how resonant inductive sensing compares to resolvers.
How to select a position sensor that maximizes product performance.
It’s nearly 10 years since CambridgeIC's inductive position sensing solution was launched in a customer product.
While we were at the SPS show recently we took the opportunity to shoot a short video that demonstrates the basic operation of a CambridgeIC system.
Are you choosing a position sensor for motor control that will operate in a dirty, high vibration or otherwise harsh environment?
There are many sensing solutions for motor control; optical and magnetic encoders, Hall sensors, resolvers. Between them they provide a wide range of options with different performance in speed of response, design efficiency, durability and cost effectiveness. However all of the widely used sensors for motor control have strengths and weaknesses; it is important to understand these when selecting a sensor.
CambridgeIC has today released the CAM312, a chip for measuring the position of parts inside machines that offers outstanding performance measuring moving parts in tough environments.
