  • Publication number: 20220057235
    Abstract: A sensor for detecting a position on a path extending in a path direction, includes a transmitter element having at least one centrally arranged magnet and two magnets arranged at the edge in front of and behind the centrally arranged magnet. The magnetic poles of the magnets are aligned transversely with respect to the path direction to emit a magnetic field which varies in the path direction. The sensor includes a measurement transducer arranged to output a measurement signal dependent on the magnetic field. The transmitter element and the measurement transducer are movable with respect to one another. The sensor includes an evaluation device set up to output, based on the measurement signal, a sensor signal dependent on the relative position between the measurement transducer and the transmitter element. The centrally arranged magnet is arranged to excite a greater magnetic flux than the magnets arranged at the edge.
