SG2Q TORQUE SENSOR MODULE FOR E-BIKE
The SG2Q module set is designed as a very responsive contactless torque sensor module. Suitable for a range of applications involving torque measurements on a rotating shaft/spindle using a strain gauge sensor. A prime example application is an e-bike mid-drive motor for higher-end e-bikes where responsiveness and accuracy are key to provide the best rider experience.
By using wireless power and data transfer, the rotating torque shaft side is free of any batteries. A one-millimeter air gap between the rotor part and the stator part provides a friction-free solution. The sensor is ideal for reliable measurement of static and dynamic torque on non-rotating as well as rotating components. Integration into an e-bike system is easy using the optional CAN bus interface or the direct analog torque output.
High reliability through the use of automotive-qualified components (AEC-Q).
