Some time ago I purchased some chips
from Digi-Key, the AS5311.
It is a high-resolution magnetic linear
encoder. I like the part very much.
Unfortunately what I am unable to locate
is the appropriate magnetized tape for it.
The part requires a 1 mm pole width,
in other words North-to-North spacing of
I cannot locate a source of the tape to use.
I would like several feet of it.
I have attempted to contact Bogen (a German company) to try
to purchase a few feet of the appropriate tape (~10 mm or 1/2" wide)
however have run into a total dead-end.
I’m attempting to work with students at a local high school on a
robotics project, not needing to buy it by huge rolls – however it seems
impossible to find.
Can anyone please help me?
