HallinMotion: Multi-dimensional position measurement

With the algorithms we developed for multi-dimensional position measurement »HallinMotion®«, for the first time all six mechanical degrees of freedom can be determined with just one sensor chip. A measuring system consisting of permanent or electromagnet and sensor chip enables very high measuring rates with the highest accuracy. Temperature fluctuations and external fields can be compensated so that they have no influence on the calculated position values.

The new algorithm can also be used where, with previous 1D or 2D systems, disruptive transverse movements have prevented greater accuracy. Existing applications can thus be made simpler and more robust.
