ams OSRAM AS5600-POTUINO Shield

ams OSRAM AS5600-POTUINO Shield is an Arduino UNO compatible demonstration and development platform for the AS5600 Rotary Magnetic Position Sensor. The AS5600 is an easy-to-program magnetic sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit analog or PWM output. The AS5600 Sensor measures the absolute angle of a diametrically magnetized on-axis magnet using a contactless system. The AS5600's robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields developed specifically for contactless potentiometer applications. These AS5600's industry-standard I2C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer. The AS5600 Sensor offers a default output range of 0° to 360°.

The ams OSRAM AS5600-POTUINO Shield is fully assembled with the AS5600 IC and its necessary external components. The Shield also includes a Breakout Magnet Holder and a Breakout Adapter Board is possible. A LabVIEW evaluation GUI software and example source code are available for download.
