Motion control systems in vehicles require sensing that Hall sensors frequently provide. In some instances, sensing all three directions can improve and simplify the systems design. For these applications, austriamicrosystems introduced the AS5410 linear position sensor based on a 3D Hall platform. The sensor measures absolute position in automotive & industrial applications and provides a linearized output with up to 0.5 % accuracy.
The 3D Hall sensor’s output remains stable even when the device is subject to external stray magnetic fields. The result of a differential measurement technique, the company claims this capability as a worldwide first.
Sampling now, production quantities of the sensor will be available in Q3. Pricing for the AS5410 3D Hall sensor starts at $ 3.75 for 1000-piece quantities.
