Description

Block diagram PO2210 (click on image to enlarge)

The inductive micro-sensor is an integrated version of the LVDT and resolver type of sensors. The core is a sensor chip with one generator coil and two sets of detection coils. The detection coils are connected in a differential arrangement, to reject the common mode signal. The sensor also includes an electronic interface, which is composed of a high frequency excitation for the generator coil and two read-out channels for the two sets of detection coils (channels A and B). The read-out electronics extract the amplitude variation of the high frequency signal due to the presence of a metallic target. The output stage consists of a low-pass filter and a comparator. For a nominal target period of 1.3 – 1.5 mm (module 0.4 – 0.5), the outputs are two channels in quadrature (A quad B).

Output signals

Output signals A and B have a periodicity identical to the target gear. The ratio between the pulse-width (P) and the cycle-width (C) yields the duty cycle (D) for any of the two channels. The phase difference (f) between the channels A and B is defined by the ratio of the width between two rising edges over the cycle-width.

Reference gear

The sensor can operate in combination with a wide range of linear or angular target gears. However, sensing characteristics (duty cycle, phase) and maximum working distance depend on the target form. For linear gears, a target period of 1.3 – 1.5 mm generates A and B signals in quadrature and duty cycle close to 50%. On angular gears, this corresponds to a module 0.4 – 0.5.

Radial mounting

Technical drawing PO2210 (click on image to enlarge)

The sensor may be used in many different application specific mounting configurations. For angular gears, radial and axial mounting are commonly used. Furthermore, the sensor may be rotated around its sensitive axis to adjust the phase difference between channels A and B.
