New Vishay MCB RAME012 Position Sensor Delivers High Performance in Miniature Size for Military and Industrial Applications

NORTHVALE, New Jersey, USA – New Yorker Electronics has announced Vishay Intertechnology’s release of the new miniature position sensor with a small 12.7mm outer diameter. According to Vishay, the sensor delivers higher accuracy and resolution than similar devices of the same size, while offering increased reliability and durability for harsh military and industrial operating environments. In addition, its plug-and-play operation eliminates the need for calibration.

The Vishay MCB RAME012 rotational absolute magnetic encoder uses advanced contactless technology to achieve greater than 11-bit accuracy and 14-bit resolution, while maintaining robustness against external magnetic fields, airborne pollution, vibration, mechanical shock and changes in temperature. The device features a useful electrical angle of 360° and works over a temperature range of -40°C to +105°C.

The stainless steel body design of the RAME012 — as well as its on-axis design, slim diameter and light weight (< 11g) — make it ideal for applications where little space is available, but an angular position needs to be detected with high accuracy. The device is available in a single-turn variant featuring an SSI output signal, with other mechanical and electrical interfaces also available on request.

With its SSI output and excellent performance / size ratio, the position sensor released today offers a perfect replacement for potentiometers in missile guidance systems, gimbals for optical balls and missile seekers, positioning systems for small industrial actuators (servo drives), and the multi-dimensional mechanical measurement of surfaces using 3D probes.

Features & Benefits:

  • High accuracy > 11 bits
  • Small outer diameter of 12.7mm
  • SSI output
  • Plug-and-play operation
  • Operating temperature range: -40°C to +105°C
  • Stainless steel body


  • Harsh Environments
  • Military Applications
  • Industrial Applications

Samples and production quantities of the RAME012 are available now, with a lead time of 20 weeks for larger orders. As a franchised distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies Vishay MCB Power Thick Film, Wirewound, Heating and other Resistors as well as Angular and Linear Potentiometers.
