Old-style buttons, switches or sensors on all manner of consumer
appliance are prone to eventual failure – only so many times will they
mechanically work before becoming stressed, fatigued, or contaminated with
grease or dirt. As such mechanisms are inherently unreliable, manufacturers are
turning instead to contactless, solid-state solutions to detect the rotation of
a knob, the press of a button, or the position of a robot. The home appliance
and consumer device markets are highly competitive, so the value of ams-OSRAM’
AS5600 is becoming ever more apparent.
AS5600 is being used by manufacturers of home appliances, consumer robots, toys
and more to save space and weight, boost performance and improve reliability.
In fact, a system based on the AS5600 can be operated millions of times without
any degradation. It is even suitable for use in battery-powered devices, thanks
to its low-power modes which reduce power consumption almost to nothing when
the sensor is not in active use. This helps it to achieve better efficiency
ratings, meeting standards like the new EU consumer labelling scheme for
consumer products. And we have not even got to the benefits of stray field
