How Do I Choose the Right Angle Sensor for My Application?
Before choosing an angle sensor, it is important to understand the requirements of your application. Consider the range of motion, accuracy, and resolution needed for your specific application. Additionally, think about the environmental conditions the sensor will be exposed to, such as temperature, humidity, and vibration.
Type of Angle Sensor
There are several types of angle sensors available, and each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to choose the one that fits your application the best.
In Sensitivus we have developed an angle sensor that is based on inductive technology and tightly integrated with a torque sensor. This is ideal for most e-bike applications.
Another important factor to consider is the output signal of the angle sensor. Common output signals include analog voltage, current, or resistance, as well as digital signals such as pulse-width modulation (PWM) or serial communication. Choose the output signal that is compatible with your system and provides the necessary resolution and accuracy.
Cost and Availability
Finally, consider the cost and availability of the angle sensor. The sensor must fit within your budget in the long term. Additionally, consider the cost of ownership, including maintenance and replacement costs.
In summary, to choose the right angle sensor for your application you need to carefully consider the range of motion, accuracy, and resolution needed, as well as the environmental conditions the sensor will be exposed to.
Additionally, consider the type of angle sensor, output signal, cost, and availability. By taking these factors into account, you can select an angle sensor that meets the requirements of your application and provides reliable and accurate measurements.
