R&D Results – The Development of a High Accuracy Multipole Strip Magnet for Non-Contact Linear and Rotary Position Measurement

By Dexter Magnetic Technologies

In global industry there is a need for the accurate, repeatable and reliable measurement of linear and rotary motion and position. This includes needs in the fields of aerospace, oil and gas exploration and production, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive, military, medical and other industries. Applications include monitoring the movement of linear shafts and pistons, rotating gears and wheels, pivoting joints, and basically the motion of any one mechanical component in a piece of equipment relative to another. Applications can be as small as miniaturized focus modules for biometric ID, to the motions controls for a CNC gantry type coordinate measuring machine.
