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 robust, 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 short stroke sensor is a Type 4 sensor (find out more about how sensors are classified and what this means for CTU selection in our FAQ). The CAM204 Central Tracking Unit (CTU) chip can measure up to four Type 4 sensors and the CAM312 can measure up to 2 sensors. Specific development boards are available for testing (see below).
