How to Improve Your Motor Control Sensor Designs with Inductive Position Technology
Mark Smith, Senior Product Line Marketing Manager • Microchip
Offering significant advantages over existing tradition magnetic based resolvers and sensors, inductive positions sensors measure high speed absolute linear and angular/rotation movements found in a variety of motor control applications. Compared to magnetic resolvers, they are smaller, lighter weight, and lower cost. Compared to magnet-based sensors they are more accurate, are immune to stray magnetic fields and don’t require an external magnetic device. This talk discusses how these works and how they can be used in motor control applications.
