Rotary Miniature Hall-Effect Position Sensor

This rotary sensor provides a perfect fit for preferential use in space constraint applications. Despite its lightweight and miniature size of only 28mm x 17mm, this hall effect sensor delivers high performance with up to 360º electrical angle (without dead zone), 12bit resolution, extended life and EMI & ESD protection.
The MSC-360 can easily be tailored to customers’ needs providing high price-performance ratio even for the most demanding environments.


Without any gears or mechanical interfaces the sensor is easily assembled and calibrated and subject to limited wear and tear over lifetime.

With a packaging space of less than 28 x 17 x 13 mm and less than 7g this rotary sensor can be used in even the most space-constraint application.

The rugged package protects the sensor from dust, moisture, vibration and extreme temperatures for usage in the most demanding environments.
The magnet is securely fastened to the shaft and acts as only moving component in the sensor.

Endless mechanical rotational angle without dead band, keeps the position on power loss with programmable electrical angles from 90 to 360 degrees.

Programmable transfer function as well as different output protocols and redundancy levels available.
