With the bus interface, the product now offers the ability to track the location of up to four position marker magnets. The transducer outputs a digital time value that is used by the controller to calculate the position of each magnet using the transducer length and resolution. With optional measuring ranges from 50 mm to 1.5 m, the product is available in a non-contact, floating magnet configuration.

The VARAN client chip is embedded into the transducer, allowing for simple read/write configuration. The bus is based on IEEE 802.3, 100 Base Tx.
