Bourns’ combined torque and angle sensor is designed for electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) applications and other automotive systems. Suitable for column- or rack-mounted EPAS, the new combined sensor provides torque and steering angle measurement in a single package, thereby replacing two discrete sensors for space and cost savings. Based on Bourns’ Hall-effect, non-clockspring torque sensor technology, the device uses driver input to measure the steering torque while simultaneously converting the rotation speed and direction of the steering wheel. The torque portion of the sensor is designed specifically for EPAS, and the steering angle signal can be used in a variety of automotive systems, including electronic stability control, advanced front lighting systems, navigation, and assisted parking systems.
