POSITAL multiturn encoders have been succesfully using Wiegand sensors since 2006. This energy harvesting system generates short, powerful voltage pulses sufficient to power the rotation-counting electronic circuit, even when the speed of rotation is very low. This solution enables the reliable measurement of multi-turn absolute positions without requiring access to an external power supply.
