Honeywell Sensing and Control SMART Position Sensor

The SMART Position Sensor, 75 mm Linear Configuration, is Honeywell’s first non-contacting linear position sensor that allows unparalleled accuracy and reliability in applications that require measurement of any linear movement. This sensor is considered smart because it can essentially think for itself. It has the ability to self-calibrate because it uses a patented combination of an ASIC and an array of magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to accurately and reliably determine the position of a magnet attached to a moving object so that the object’s position can be determined. With this sensor, Honeywell has utilized MR technology through the ASIC at a level never before accomplished. These devices are designed for potential industrial, medical, and aerospace applications.
