Position Sensors

The MPS MagAlpha family of magnetic angle position sensors offers a revolutionary way to measure angles. Leveraging more than a decade of experience, the MagAlpha range offers unique performance advantages compared to rival magnetic sensing technologies.
MagAlpha sensors use the patented SpinAxisTM Hall measurement technique that provides instantaneous angle position in a digital format. SpinAxisTM uses a phase detection approach that eliminates any need for analog to digital conversion or complex angle calculation used by more traditional technologies.
