Triaxis® Position Sensor
The Melexis MLX90392 is part of the Triaxis® unique sensing solution, an innovative magnetic sensor technology capable of very precise three axis magnetic field measurements from a single sensor.
Experience endless angular, linear and 3D applications with Triaxis®, a sensor which features patented innovative magnetic sensor technology that enables measurement of the three magnetic flux components (BX, BY and BZ) in a single integrated circuit, the MLX90392 utilizes a unique Integrated Magnetic Concentrator (IMC®).
Using the three magnetic components, it is possible to create 2D or 3D sensors that determine rotary (angle), linear (stroke), or even joystick type motion as well as 3D-magnetometers that can output the individual magnetic (BX, BY, and BZ) components.
