Abstract

There is described a position sensor in which a first Aerial and a second aerial are provided on plural planar substrates which are arranged in parallel with each other. A sensor element is operable to move relative to the plurality of planar substrates along a measurement direction transverse to the planar substrates. By appropriately distributing conductive tracks on at least two planar surfaces of the Plurality of planar substrates, the orthogonal position of a sensor element relative to the planar substrates may be detected.
