AS5510 Linear Position Sensor

10-Bit Linear Position Sensor With Digital Position (Interface) Output

The AS5510 is an absolute position sensor for linear applications with short strokes (0.5 to 2.0mm) based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure a lateral movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet and the measured distance depends on the magnet geometry. The absolute position is measured with a resolution of 10-bit = 1024 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I2C).
