The inductive motor control position sensor detects the electrical position within one pole-pair of a rotating shaft and can be used for the motor commutation of a brushless DC (BLDC) motor. Based on the inductive sensor technology, this family measures the coupling between an excitation coil (TX) and two receiver coils (RX) via a rotating target. The coils are executed as printed circuit coils and the rotating target is a simple punched metal part. With the correct layout of the coils and the target, both synchronized to the number of pole-pair count of the motor, the IC output is proportional to the electrical angular position within one pole-pair segment with increased resolution and high performance of only 0.3° electrical INL!
Due to its flexibility, easy adaption and low overall system costs, this family acts as the perfect resolver replacement and can be used for on-axis as well off-axis applications!
