Description

The TIDA-00463 showcases a displacement sensor for linear distance measurements in a BoosterPack form factor for TI LaunchPad.  The design is suitable for any application where a distance measurement, even through non-magnetic materials, is needed and non-contact, wear-free measurements are required.  Through the use of magnetic fluxgate technology, this design is able to cover a wide measurement distance while achieving high resolution and accuracy.

Features
  • Measures 10cm distance, 1mm resolution, with a 6mm diameter NdFeB magnet(Hc>1350kA/m)
  • Able to detect the presence of the magnet up to 30cm
  • Common mode fields rejection
  • Temperature range: -40°C to 125°C
  • No temperature dependent: Max Temp Drift=100nT/°C
