Title: DEVICE WITH AN ENCODER AND A SENSOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device comprising an encoder and a sensor, the position of the encoder relative to the sensor being changeable by rotation about a rotation axis, the encoder having a magnet, the direction of magnetisation of which points in the direction of the rotation axis, the sensor having four magnetoresistive resistors which are connected to form a Wheatstone bridge and which are arranged in a plane perpendicular to the rotation axis, the four magnetoresistive resistors being arranged around a centre point of the sensor which is located on the rotation axis.
