Steering torque and angle sensor

HELLAs steering torque and angle sensor is integrated into the electric power steering and provides the customer with two feedbacks simultaneously:

  • Steering torque: The sensor records the torsion bar angle required for the steering movement
  • Steering angle: The sensor measures the angle and speed of change in the position of the steering wheel

Both sensor functions are integrated within one sensor, benefitting from HELLAs in-house technology CIPOS® (contactless inductive position sensor).


  • Modular sensor design for all electric power steering (EPS)
  • System integration competences through HELLAs EPS
  • Diversification of technologies (inductive and HALL)
  • Absolute angle information for output and input shaft
  • Ratio metric measuring principle to improve accuracy over total measurement range
  • Free programmable torque range with up to +/- 8°
  • Intelligent software concept to increase safety
  • No need for additional steering angle sensor in the steering column
