TE Connectivity KMA36 Element

The KMA36 element is a contactless linear and rotational encoder. This element is for using the TE Connectivity KMA36 magnetic encoder.

The KMA36 is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Element Add Element button located in the toolbox from the Embedded tab.


The following properties can be changed for the KMA36 element:


The name of the element.

I2C Driver Instance

I2C driver instance to use for communication.

I2C Address

The I2C Address of the sensor.


Oversampling mode in Hz.

Fast Speed

Enable fast reading to increase update rate. Accuracy will be reduced. See the KMA36 datasheet for details.

Low Power

Enable low power mode. Maximum angle reduced to 180° in this mode.


Measurement resolution in .01° steps. Default is 10 for .1° precision.


The following triggers are available to execute events from within the KMA36 element:


Execute an event when the source element connected to the KMA36 triggers.

Angle Read

Execute an event when the angle is read from the KMA36.


The following abilities are available for the KMA36 element when its source element triggers:


Trigger the element(s) that follow the KMA36 element.

Read Angle

Read the angle in degrees.
