Magbase for high accuracy positioning

Combination of Magnetic proximity sensor and Magbase

As shown in the diagram, Magbase is an array of 3 magnets disposed on an iron plate with each polarity alternated (patented). By using a Magbase instead of a magnet, the effect of gap change on the sensing area can be minimized. Furthermore, since the arrayed magnets make the magnetic gradient neighboring the magnetic boundary of the sensing area dense, Magbase provides much higher precision for operating point repeatability compared to a magnet.

This combination achieves a highly precise repeatability never before possible with traditional proximity sensors and magnetoresistance elements.

■Magnetic Property

The components perpendicular to the X-axis of the magnetic distribution are measured according to the layout described in the figure. The values are not guaranteed values, but average values.
