Grove - 12-bit Magnetic Rotary Position Sensor / Encoder (AS5600)
Grove 12-bit Magnetic Rotary Position Sensor / Encoder (AS5600) is a programmable 12-bit high-resolution contactless magnetic rotary position sensor. Compared with the traditional potentiometer, it has significant advantages: high precision, non-contact, no rotation angle limitation.

The AS5600 has certain requirements for the magnetic field to be measured. Please use a magnet similar in size to the chip. The module should be measured as close as possible to the magnetic field and the AS5600 sensor center should be aligned with the center of the magnetic field. The vertical distance is preferably from 0.5 mm to 3 mm.

What is Grove?
Grove makes it easier to connect, experiment, and simplify the prototyping process. No jumpers or soldering required. We have developed more than 300 Grove modules, covering a wide range of applications that can fulfill a variety of needs. Not only are these open hardware, but we also have open-source software.
