MagnetoPot

MagnetoPot - Membrane Potentiometers

The MagnetoPot is simple, yet elegant in its ability to track motion in a contactless manner. A magnet on the inside of a cylinder, or a magnet on the opposing side of a motion device will guide the built-in magnetics of the MagnetoPot for position location through a potentiometric output. The MagnetoPot is a sealed potentiometer, in the membrane potentiometer tradition, yet it does not require a wiper/actuator to connect the collector and the resistor. Instead, the MagnetoPot is controlled by an outside magnet, which attracts the magnetic forces within the MagnetoPot to connect to the linear resistor and give linear potentiometer feedback. The wiper inside the sealed pot is magnetic or ferromagnetic, and will only perform if connected with an exterior magnet. As opposed to a magnetically-based Reed Switch, which gives simply “open” or “close” signals, the MagnetoPot gives the full linear travel of a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. In liquid level applications, the MagnetoPot can attach to the outside of a liquid tank and give position of the magnet inside the float. No water ingress, no wearing of the part by environment, because the MagnetoPot is outside of the tank.
