Magnetic Angle Position and Contactless HMI Sensors
If you are a developer of applications which requires angle detection, you might encounter several issues to improve contact volume lifetime and off-set, or encoder space limitations, or need to improve angle detection performance for low power applications.
MPS’s MagAlphaTM Magnetic Angle Sensor product family will help you to solve those issues.
MagAlphaTM Magnetic Angle Sensor Product Family
The MPS MagAlpha family of magnetic angle position sensors offers a revolutionary way to measure angles. The MagAlpha range offers unique performance advantages compared to rival magnetic sensing technologies.

Advantages of MagAlpha Angle Sensors
SpinAxisTM Hall measurement technique
MagAlpha sensors use the patented SpinAxisTM Hall measurement technique that provides instantaneous angle position in a digital format. SpinAxis uses a phase detection approach that eliminates any need for analog to digital conversion or complex angle calculation used by more traditional technologies.

MagAlpha Magnetic Angle Sensors Featured Products
The MA600 is a precision, high-bandwidth magnetic angle sensor that detects the absolute angular position of a permanent magnet, typically a diametrically magnetized cylinder on a rotating shaft. Integrated with a precision TMR sensor, it achieves high bandwidth and high accuracy (INL), making it an ideal solution for position control and robotics.

Using our proprietary SpinAxisTM Hall Sensor Technology, this encoder provides true absolute position data and can be used on-axis, side axis and side axis orthogonal applications. Some potential applications include products requiring low average power consumption, such as battery-powered devices, IoT, HMI, and space-constrained applications such as extremely small motors or mechatronic systems.
