Angle of rotation detector

Posted on Nov 8, 2012

The figure shows two TL3103 linear Hall-effect devices used for detecting the angle of rotation. The TL3103s are centered in the gap of a U-shaped permanent magnet. The angle that the south pole makes with the chip face of unit #1 is defined as angle 0. Angle 0 is set to 0° when the chip face of unit #1 is perpendicular to the south pole of the magnet. As the south pole of the magnet sweeps through a 0° to 90° angle, the output of the sensor increases from 0°.

Sensor unit #2 decreases from its peak value of + Vp at 0° to a value Vqq at 90°. So, the output of sensor unit #1 is a sine function of 0 and the output of unit #2 is a cosine function of 0 as shown. Thus, the first sensor yields the angle of rotation and the second sensor indicates the quadrant location.
