Non-contacting torque sensor for power steering
The device, designated the Magnetorque Plus, combines a non-contacting torque sensor with a multi-turn position sensor in a single package.
The torque and position sensing functions are based on Hall Effect technology with a non-contact design that maximises mechanical durability to support a minimum lifetime of 1 million shaft rotations without degradation of electrical outputs.
Dual torque outputs allow accurate diagnostic calculations and availability of custom output slopes.
Instant output at “power-on” provides several benefits, including enhanced accuracy and no standby current. The position output provides absolute multi-turn position information up to ±900° of rotation.
