Magnetic position sensors have several advantages which make them attractive for automotive applications: they are contactless (there is no mechanical wear-out), insensitive to dirt, low cost and MMT has been a leader in the development of solutions based on measurement of magnetic field amplitude using Hall effect. In this paper, we will present a new generation of sensors using recently developed angular position sensors which measure the angle of the magnetic field generated by a diametrically or sinusoidally magnetized magnet, with a focus on through shaft 360° angular sensors and linear sensors adapted to large displacements [10 … 200 mm].
The growing interest and activity in the field of sensor technologies requires a forum for rapid dissemination of important results: Sensor Letters is that forum. Sensor Letters offers scientists, engineers and medical experts timely, peer-reviewed research on sensor science and technology of the highest quality. Sensor Letters publish original rapid communications, full papers and timely state-of-the-art reviews encompassing the fundamental and applied research on sensor science and technology in all fields of science, engineering, and medicine. Highest priority will be given to short communications reporting important new scientific and technological findings.
