Angle sensing and motor control
Highly accurate, robust and reliable, compact position sensors from ams are an ideal fit for automotive angle and rotary position sensing applications.
ams automotive angle sensors are widely used for sensing the angle of the accelerator and brake pedals, and the position of gear shifters and chassis.
Dedicated rotary position sensors for motor control are also ideal for automotive uses, such as the pump motors in electric power steering and transmission system motors. The number of electric and hybrid electric vehicles on the road is also set to grow at a rapid rate. Here, the ams motor control sensor portfolio offers high accuracy at high rotation speeds, while remaining inherently immune to the external magnetic fields induced by the high currents flowing through the motor.
