Combined Torque/Angle Sensor Outfits Electric Steering Apps

Targeting electric power assisted steering applications, the company’s combined torque and angle sensor provides torque and steering angle measurement in a single package. It replaces two discrete sensors and employs the company’s Hall Effect non-clockspring torque sensor technology. The sensor uses driver input to measure steering torque while simultaneously converting rotation speed and direction of the steering wheel. Variations of the torque and angle sensor combo include dual- and single-channel options on the torque portion depending on redundancy requirements, and the steering angle sensor can support incremental or absolute measurement.
