Type 1 sensors are robust, precise and simple. This set of sensors is also narrow - 10mm wide - which means they can fit in tight spaces. Standard sensors are available from 25mm to 300mm measuring length.
A single CAM204 Central Tracking Unit (CTU) chip can operate up to 4 Type 1 sensors, including a mix of linear and rotary.
The CTU Development Kit includes the following linear sensors: 25mm, 50mm, 100mm and 200mm.
Alternatively, assembled sensors may be purchased individually for prototyping purposes. They may be connected with the 6-way Sensor Connecting Cable part number 013-6001. Compatibe development boards include the CAM312 Development Board, which operates up to 2 Type 1 sensors (Set Sensor Type to 4). For applications requiring more than 2 sensors connected to the same CTU chip, use the Type 1 CAM204 Development Board which operates up to 4 Type 1 sensors.
