NS-2000 Series Sensor Controller

NS-2000 Series Sensor Controller

Single channel controllers for the NanoSensor series capacitive sensors.

The NS2000 series controllers operate by measuring the change in capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor and output an analogue voltage proportional to the NanoSensor gap. The voltage output varies linearly between -5V and +5V as the sensor gap changes from 50% to 150% of the nominal NanoSensor gap.  Its compact size, standalone operation and high resolution makes this ideal for systems where NanoPositioning is required.
