Contactless Magnetic Angle Sensing

Contactless magnetic angle position sensors are now giving optical encoders a run for their money. This was recently demonstrated by Monolithic Power Systems at Electronica 2018. They had on display a unique non-automotive-focused electric vehicle, mCar, with motion control and angular sensors. According to MPS, their mCar demos two main functions—motor control elements, and angular position sensors. As Quitugua-Flores, the mechanical engineer and primary designer of the mCar at MPS explains, Read more [...]
