Zettlex position sensor technology uses a unique inductive technique. The basic position sensing principles are similar to traditional inductive proximity switches or measuring transformers but rather than wire windings or spools, Zettlex inductive encoders use printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Advantages of Zettlex inductive encoder technology include:-

The use of PCBs means that a bespoke shape or size of sensor is readily engineered to suit a specific application – especially for OEMs. Inductive sensors are most frequently used as part of a control system to measure absolute linear position or angle (single turn or multi-turn). Measurement ranges vary greatly – from 0,1mm to 10m and topologies include rotary, linear, 2D and 3D.
