Steering-angle sensor

  • 22-Jul-2010 01:48 EDT

Bosch designs a new steering-angle sensor that recently went into series production. The LWS6, claims the company, meets standard requirements of safety and comfort systems and is suitable for electronic stability program (ESP) applications in compact class vehicles and classes farther down the scale. The signals from the LWS6 can also be used for systems such as electrohydraulic power steering or adaptive cruise control. The cost-effective sensor measures relatively over an unlimited measuring range and has a typical steering-angle signal resolution of 1.5°. The LWS6 steering-angle sensor uses the Hall effect. For this purpose, a multipole magnet is fixed to the steering column. The control unit also validates the sensor output signals and detects short circuits, for example. Due to the incremental measuring principle of the LWS6, it no longer has to be calibrated by automakers.
