Rotary Through-Shaft Miniature Hall-Effect Position Sensor

The MTS-360 provides a true breakthrough in contactless sensor technology by combining a
through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. The result is the smallest fully featured rotary sensor on the market with reliability up to 50 million cycles.
With its tiny size, engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their PCB without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other absolute position devices. The exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors.
The MTS-360 PCB package enables time and cost savings by easily mounting a fully featured rotary sensor including connector without the need to design a printed circuit board for the sensor.


Without any gears or mechanical interfaces the sensor is easily assembled and calibrated and subject to limited wear and tear over lifetime.
With a footprint of less than 18 x 18mm, height of 5.9mm and less than 3g this rotary sensor can be used in even the most space-constraint application.
Allows shaft insertion from top or bottom, simple assembly and makes it even more suitable in applications where space is limited.
Endless mechanical rotational angle without dead band, keeps the position on power loss with programmable electrical angles from 15 to 360 degrees.
The non-contacting design allows for an extra-long product lifetime of up to 50 million cycles.
