The advancing digitalization of manufacturing (“smart factories”) will create a high demand of position sensors. Besides environmental monitoring, position sensing will play a key role in future production processes. In summary, position measurement needs to become modular and scalable to different sensing dimensions with demanding accuracy requirements. xMR (magneto-resistive) technologies can give answers to achieve adaptive sensor systems under the objective of finding an optimum application solution in terms of performance, size and price.
