MLX90360

 

 

 The MLX90360 is the second generation of Triaxis® position sensor. Thanks to an Integrated Magneto-Concentrator (IMC) on its surface, the monolithic device senses, in a contactless fashion, the three spatial components (i.e. Bx, By and Bz) of the applied magnetic flux density. This unique sensing principle applied to a position sensor results into an impressive robustness of the position signal over the mechanical (airgap, off-axis) tolerances. The rotation of this horizontal component is sensed over a wide range (up to 360º - complete revolution) and processed by the on-chip DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to ultimately report the absolute angular position of the end-of-shaft magnet. Alternatively, through measuring individually the horizontal and vertical components, the MLX90360 is able to address linear stroke (displacement) position sensor and also absolute rotary position sensor with a through-shaft magnet. The MLX90360 reports either  a ratio-metric analog output or a PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) signal. From the sensing and reporting perspectives, the MLX90360 is an extremely versatile product for any stand-alone remote position sensor application. The output transfer characteristic is fully programmable (e.g. offset, gain, clamping levels, linearity, thermal drift, filtering, range...) to match any specific requirement through end-of-line calibration. The Melexis programming unit PTC-04 communicates and calibrates the device exclusively through the connector terminals (VDD-VSS-Out). The MLX90360 targets and is used in a myriad of non-contacting rotary position sensor applications which are frequently seen in automotive and industrial systems. The device is available in single and dual redundant implementations to cost-effectively address the full range of applications, including safety critical sensing requirements. The MLX90360 is pin-to-pin compatible with the first generation Triaxis® Position Sensors:

MLX90316, MLX90324 and MLX90333
