Amphenol Sensors is a leading innovator in sensing technologies and measurement solutions. Offering the most diverse sensor portfolio of standard and customized products for the world’s most demanding regulatory and industry-driven applications, Amphenol creates value by providing critical information for real-time decisions.
The advantages of Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (EV/HEV) have been long-known. To the everyday driver, they offer reduced fuel costs. For the environment, they utilize renewable energy and offer reduced emissions.
Challenges associated with EV/HEV stem from a limited availability of technologies to enable the use of electricity as a fuel source in a safe and cost-effective manner.
With our vast automotive expertise, engineering resources and manufacturing capabilities, Amphenol Sensors offers various sensing solutions that enable automotive manufacturers to accelerate the electrification of vehicles around the world.
Design engineers of rugged vehicles want all the benefits of contactless rotary sensing (no wear and tear) without expensive overengineered solutions to precision.
They want enough accuracy plus stable performance over a long lifetime, despite environmental extremes.
- No tear/wear or mechanical contacts.
- Plug and play sensors: easy installation.
- Increased customer satisfaction through best results in throttle and other position sensors.
Inductive position sensor for absolute rotary or linear motion sensing in automotive, off-highway, industrial, medical and consumer applications.
It uses the physical principles of induction in a wire loop and eddy currents to detect the position of a solid metallic structure that is sliding or rotating above a set of coils consisting of one transmitter coil and two receiver coils.
The coils are printed as copper traces on a printed circuit board (PCB) and arranged such that the transmitter coil induces a secondary voltage in the receiver coils that depends on the position of the metallic target above the coils.
The absolute angle measurement provides instant feedback of the metallic target's angular position with a resolution of up to 12 bit.
Custom product design packaging can be provided to meet any form, fit and function including the choice of wire harness and interface connector.
