Displacement Sensor DS2001

The oscillation frequency varies corresponding to the distance when the distance between the sensor coil surface and the opposed metal is no more than a few millimeters.

When the distance is 1 mm or less, the frequency varies significantly. As a result, the displacement resolution is become better.

Due to the high oscillation frequency, the sensor reacts to even metal foil and plating due to the skin effect.

Distance Characteristics


Operating principle


When a measurement signal of a given length is input to the sensor, the counter in the IC integrates the frequency (the integrated value is 17-bit data). This integrated value is serially output bit by bit to provide a value corresponding to the oscillation frequency and which can be processed by a microcomputer (AD conversion is not required).
