AA746 Magnetoresistive sensor for angle measurement
Highly sensitive angle sensor for heavy duty applications
Angle measurement is one of the main application areas of MR sensors. The non-contacting, wear-free measurement principle, combined with high accuracy and highly dynamic performance make MR sensors the ideal choice for machine designers. MR sensors offer different methods for the measurement of angles. Each of them is optimized to fulfil the requirements of the individual application. The sensor is available as bare die or in an SO8 package.
The new AA746 offers a significantly increased air gap between measurement scale and sensor and is therefore ideally suited for heavy-duty applications with large mechanical tolerances. Typical applications are: incremental or absolute position measurement, motor commutation, rotational speed measurement or angle measurement (180° absolute at shaft end).
