Rotary Knob Kit for the MagAlpha
The EVKT-KNOB is an evaluation kit for the MagAlpha magnetic position sensor family. The EVKT-KNOB allows users to run and test the MagAlpha sensor quickly. It is delivered assembled with a knob and magnet. The sensor is mounted in an end-of-shaft configuration.
The EVKT-KNOB is compatible with the MACOM kit, offering seamless connection and operation of the MagAlpha and allowing users to evaluate MagAlpha functionalities and performances, such as noise level, refresh rate, power-up time, magnetic field dependence, and so on.
- Ready-to-Use Knob with End-of-Shaft Magnet
- Extra Spacers
- Compatible with MagAlpha Communication Interface Kit (EVKT-MACOM)
- IC Supported 1MA302
- IC Supported 2EVKT-MACOM
The MA302 detects the absolute angular position of a permanent magnet, typically a diametrically magnetized cylinder on a rotating shaft. Fast data acquisition and processing provide accurate angle measurement at speeds from 0 to 60,000 rpm.
The MA302 supports a wide range of magnetic field strengths and spatial configurations. Both end-of-shaft and off-axis (side-shaft mounting) configurations are supported.
The MA302 features magnetic field strength detection with programmable thresholds to allow sensing of the magnet position relative to the sensor for creation of functions such as sensing of axial movements or for diagnostics.
On-chip non-volatile memory provides storage for configuration parameters, including the reference zero angle position, ABZ encoder settings, UVW pole pair emulation settings, and magnetic field detection thresholds.
