Abstract

PURPOSE: To obtain a sufficient position resolution and to reduce the cost of materials by coating the surface of the shaft of a driving cylinder with a magnet film having a high coercive force, and magnetizing this film at a prescribed pitch in the axial direction of the shaft.
CONSTITUTION: A magnetic sensor 7 consists of an MR (magnetic resistance) element and is attached to the end face of a driving cylinder 5 and faces a shaft 6 with a prescribed space between them. The magnet film and a protective film are successively constituted on the surface of the shaft base material of this shaft 6, and the magnet film is magnetized at a prescribed pitch in the axial direction of the shaft 6. When the cylinder 5 is driven to move the shaft 6, an output voltage is obtained from the sensor 7 because the magnetic flux generated around the magnet film in accordance with the magnetization pitch traverses the sensor 7. Consequently, peak points and zero-crossing points of the output voltage of the sensor 7 are counted to detect the extent of movement from a reference position.
