The TBMA is a test board for the MagAlpha magnetic position sensor family. The TBMA allows users to run and test the MagAlpha sensor quickly. TBMA boards exist in two different formats: round (RD) and long (LT). In the RD format, the sensor is mounted in an end-of-shaft configuration. In the LT format, the sensor is mounted on the edge of the board and can therefore be used in both side-shaft and end-of-shaft configurations.
The TBMA is compatible with the Macom kit, offering seamless connection and operation of the MagAlpha and allowing users to evaluate MagAlpha functionalities and performances with their own set-up.
Contrary to the EVMA, the TBMA only includes the assembled board with the sensor and decoupling capacitors. It does not include connectors.
- Round Board Format for End-of-Shaft Mounting
- Long Board Format for Side Shaft and End-of-Shaft Mounting
- Compatible with MagAlpha Communication Interface Kit (EVKT-MACOM)
- IC Supported 1MA300
The MagAlpha MA300 magnetic sensor is an all-in-one solution designed to replace Hall switches for 3-phase block commutation in brushless DC motors and provide encoder data. The MA300 detects the absolute angular position of a permanent magnet, typically a diametrically magnetized cylinder attached to the rotor. The data acquisition and processing is extremely fast, allowing for accurate angle measurement at speeds from 0 to 100,000 RPM.
Since the measurement is spatially confined, users have flexibility in terms of magnet shapes and configurations. This helps relax mechanical tolerances and, in case the end-of-shaft position is not available, the MagAlpha MA300 operates away from the axis of rotation (“side-shaft” mounting).
