CambridgeIC to unveil pan/tilt angle sensors at Electronica 2014

CambridgeIC’s resonant inductive sensors are usually hidden inside products from leading electronics brands. See them revealed at Electronica 2014 in Munich from November 11 to 14, at booth 260 in hall A4.

Details of a new range of precision angular position sensors will be published early in 2015. Features include…

Truly contactless – sensor and target can be misaligned by 0.5mm, so mechanical design is simplified.

Through-shaft – a hole in the middle of the sensor and target allows a shaft and cabling to pass through.

Sensors are PCBs with coil patterns provided by CambridgeIC. Customers usually build sensors themselves, just like other PCBs in their product.

CambridgeIC’s CAM204 processes two sensors, delivering angle data over an SPI interface.

Lead applications include…

Pan/tilt surveillance cameras, measuring azimuth and elevation angles for tight closed loop position control.

Optical encoder replacement for industrial applications.

Visit us at Electronica and ask to see “Rotary Type 6” sensors working!

About CambridgeIC
CambridgeIC develops integrated circuits for sensing the precise position of moving parts in machines. Specialising in resonant inductive position sensing, the team has been leading the development of this technology for over 16 years. CambridgeIC's CTU chips such as the CAM204 detect the position of up to 4 axes without contact, using position sensors built using conventional PCB processes. CambridgeIC's large and growing library of standard sensor designs includes linear and rotary sensors in a variety of sizes and accuracy grades. Traditional position sensing technologies such as optical encoders, LVDTs and potentiometers require specialist skills and processes for their manufacture and require housings for protection and alignment. By making sensors from PCBs to CambridgeIC's designs, customers can build sensors as part of their existing production process and embed them deeply into their product design.
