Position & Angle Sensing

Methode’s Eddy Current sensors are extremely versatile and can be used to measure linear or rotational position and movement. Our sensors use planar coils to measure the eddy current loses which result from the presence of a metal target or flag, meaning there is no dependency on the use of permanent magnets. This is particularly advantageous when measuring in an environment where metallic debris or particles can cause signal degradation over time. In addition to this our sensors are immune to electromagnetic interference which in today’s hybrid and electric vehicles is becoming ever more relevant to the sensor’s environment.
