11 Myths About Inductive Position Sensors (.PDF Download)

We’ve been waiting for a long time and now it’s being implemented widely—namely, artificial intelligence (AI). From automatic factories, self-driving cars and trucks, to robot chauffeurs, we are now seeing how AI will make automatic machines more efficient, profitable, and improve our lives. And, at the center of these automatic machines and automobiles is their ability to measure position and motion accurately.     

There are many ways to measure position, but one rapidly growing technology is the inductive position sensor. Accuracy, noise immunity, and cost-effectiveness are some of the benefits of this technology. Below, some misconceptions about inductive position sensors are dispelled alongside a comparison to other sensor technologies such as Hall-effect and magnetoresistive sensors.
