Eddy current automotive position sensor commutates motors without needing magnets

This post was originally published on this site

Renesas is claiming “total stray field immunity” for a automotive-grade magnet-free inductive rotation position sensor that works up to what the company describes as “600,000rpm (electrical)”. “We are excited with the response to the inductive position sensing technology we introduced last June for industrial motors, and we look forward to bringing its advantages to automotive …
