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 1MA800
- IC Supported 2EVKT-MACOM
The MagAlpha MA800 is a simple-to-use, digital, magnetic sensor designed to replace analogic potentiometers or rotary switches. The sensor detects the absolute angular position of a permanent magnet attached to a rotating shaft.
Since the measurement is spatially confined, the user has flexibility in terms of magnet shapes and configurations. Typically, the MA800 is used with a diametrically magnetized cylinder of 3mm to 8mm in diameter.
The MA800 features programmable magnetic field strength thresholds which allow implementation of a push button function. These are readable via the register bits and also as output signals.
On-chip non-volatile memory provides storage for configuration parameters including the reference zero angle position and the magnetic field detection thresholds.
