ZMID520x Inductive Contactless Position Sensors by IDT

Video introduction of IDT's new family of high-performance inductive contactless position sensors offering superior reliability, flexibility and serviceability while cutting system costs. The three ZMID520x sensors (ZMID5201, ZMID5202, ZMID5203) are automotive qualified to the AEC-Q100 standard and support implementation in safety-related systems compliant to ISO26262 up to ASIL-B.

By utilizing an inexpensive printed circuit coil and a simple metallic target, the ZMID520x contactless sensors eliminate magnets commonly used with position sensors, offering higher reliability and lowering costs. And, IDT’s inductive technology is immune to magnetic stray fields--parasitic magnetic fields that can cause electro-magnetic interference (EMI) and introduce safety risks. No expensive and complex shielding is required.

The new sensors are ideal for the automotive, industrial and consumer markets and can be used for such end products as vehicles, robots, home appliances and smart automation.
