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 1MA102
Motor Commutation Angle Sensor with UVW Multi-Pole Pair Emulation
The MagAlpha MA102 magnetic sensor is an all-in-one solution designed to replace Hall switches for commutation in brushless DC motors and to provide absolute angle position. Absolute position is provided in the form of an 8-bit direct digital angle on the SPI interface. 12-bit resolution UVW commutation signals are provided with emulation for 1 to 8 pole pair rotors.
The MA102 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 MA102 supports a wide range of magnetic field strengths and spatial configurations. Both end-of-shaft and off-axis (side-shaft mounting) configurations are supported.
